PASSENGER TRAINS OF TEXAS - COTTON BELT/Goen

Default Title: $49.95 USD

IN STOCK AND SHIPPING

Goen tells the story of the Cotton Belt’s historic run of passenger service through Texas with his signature style of photos and descriptions. However, he goes a step further with interesting tales that re-create the railroad’s journey through major cities and small towns in an age when rail was a major mode for moving people.

The 144-page hardback is his ninth book and includes color and black-and-white images of the Lone Star and Morning Star trains, as well as the Jitney in East Texas, gas electrics on the Stephenville, North & South Texas Railroad, and mixed trains to Sherman and Gatesville.

Chapters are in date order of when the Cotton Belt discontinued passenger service in Texas. They cover from the railroad’s origins as the Tyler Tap Railroad in 1871 to becoming a major Class 1 line – and the first in Texas to drop passenger service and haul only freight.

List price $59.95, hardcover, mostly b&w photos, but some color, 144 pages. SKU: BSSWTEXAS. Posted September 9, 2019.
