"This is a reprint of the intriguing story of four short-line railroads that operated in the Merced River Canyon to serve Yosemite National Park.
"Originally published in 1963, this volume assembles more than two hundred black-and-white photographs of railroads and trains, relating the importance of the rail lines in the visitors' experiences of Yosemite. The rich history of Yosemite is brought to life through the photographs that tell a special relationship between individuals and machines."
