"Steel Rails Across East Carolina is a leisurely excursion aboard those railroads found east of US Route One. The story is told from the viewpoint of a career railroader who has worked on many of the lines that are featured. Whether you figure your tonnage with the engineer of a grain train, put Amtrak back on the track, or work on a Baldwin diesel in a shop, you will get your hands dirty.
"Like the author's first book Yesterday's Trains: Across the Commonwealth (also available here at railroadbooks), Steel Rails Across East Carolina features a horizontal format with nearly a hundred photographs; many of which are full page. An impressive list of excellent photographers helped the author by sharing their work."
