"White River's new GM&O book is three books in one. First, it's a history book that covers the development of the postwar railroad through the mergers of Gulf, Mobile & Northern, Mobile & Ohio, and The Alton Railroad. Second, it's a handy reference book, with maps and equipment rosters and descriptions of passenger and freight operations. And third, it's a fine, entertaining trip over GM&O that you can sit back and savor, with pages of beautiful photographs and detailed descriptions.
