Excellent collection of a specialized subject
High-quality reproductions of seemingly every painting ever done (and a nice selection of photos too) containing a railway station or bridge or steam train, including some landscapes with just a wee little choo-choo in the distance, and some, like Hopper's railroad tunnel entrance, with no trains at all (and when he painted it in 1946 it was used only by electric trains anyway). The authors have done their homework, as when they point out that the landscape seen through the window in Augustus Egg's "The Travelling Companions" is of Mentone, but imaginary in the sense that there was no railway line passing Mentone at the time it was painted. You get a lot for your money, and the Buy.com price was the best I found on the Internet.
