Financier James J. Hill became known as the "Empire Builder" for expanding the Great Northern into a transcontinental mainline connecting the Great Lakes with Seattle and British Columbia. With the arrival of the diesel era, the Great Northern owned and experimented with locomotives from nearly every builder, right up to the Burlington Northern merger in 1970. From mainlines to branch lines, passenger and freight trains, this new book features some of the best color railroad photography of the steam-to-diesel transition era.
