"I have never seen such complete coverage of railroads in any single document."

"This will be the finest railroad atlas ever published."

"The book is first and foremost a geography book that can appeal to a wider audience than the railroad historian. If you know the earlier volumes, you know that this book will bring the full measure of satisfaction brought by those earlier volumes."

"Carpenter continues his admirable effort to map American railroads in the immediate postwar era... Carpenter is to be commended for his efforts. The work is meticulous, the maps are clear and beautifully reproduced, and the resulting volume is a genuine research tool as opposed to a simple picture book."

"Surely one of the most appealingly eccentric publishing ventures of the year."

"Proof that inspiration can result in something astounding... a treasure that any rail enthusiast or casual historian will enjoy."

"This book... belongs in the library of every serious rail historian."

"Carpenter has done an outstanding job showing the railroad world of 1946."

"A fine addition to any rail fan's library, perfect for a long winter evening."

"Superb series... This atlas and its companions are excellent snapshots of railroading's 'classic era.'"
