Pullman-Standard Freight Cars

"Pullman-Standard was for some years the largest freight car builder in North America, though perhaps more famous for passenger cars. This long-overdue book fills a gap in builder history, and provides an overview showing a selection of the many cars built over a 60-year span.
Ed Kaminski is well known as an authority on freight car builders, and this book takes its place alongside his earlier work on American Car & Foundry, Magor Car Company, Tank Cars from American Car & Foundry, 1865-1955 and the Gregg company. It contains a rich trove of some 400 photographs, most never before published, from Pullman and Pullman-Standard, and also from predecessors Haskell & Barker, Standard Steel Car Company, and Tennessee Coal, Iron & Railroad Company."
