The streamline era brought unexpected complexity to the operations of the Pullman Company. The handful of exceptions to Pullman's standard livery of dark olive green suddenly proliferated as railroads requested sleeping cars to match their colorful new streamliners. How did Pullman's mechanical department keep tabs on the lettering diagrams and the paint colors? Peter A. Falles, mechanical inspector for the Pullman Company, kept a series of notebooks containing that information. After his retirement, he gave these notebooks and a set of paint samples to Arthur Dubin. Dubin, a longtime admirer of passenger trains worldwide, has combined those note-books and paint samples with photos from his collection to create this guide to the variety of paint schemes found on Pullman cars from the 1930s to the 1960s, until the advent of Amtrak and VIA Rail Canada.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Arthur Detmers Dubin's interest in passenger trains has been lifelong. He is known for his two monumental books on North American passenger trains, Some Classic Trains and More Classic Trains, and for his collection of Pullman and passenger train memorabilia. The collection is now largely at the Smithsonian Institution and the State Historic Library Division of the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency. By profession an architect, he retired recently as a senior partner of the distinguished Chicago architec-tural firm Dubin, Dubin & Moutoussamy. His knowledge of transportation was important in the firm's successful undertaking of projects for the Washington (D.C.) Metro, the Chicago & North Western Railway, the Chicago Transit Authority, and American Airlines. He has served on numerous advisory boards and commissions in passenger transportation.

Withers Publishing 1996, US$ 29.95, softcover, 164 pages

 1984年から1995年までに製造されたSD60シリーズの全てを解説。正にHOスケール・モデルのための参考書といった趣きで、各バリエーションの細部写真と10枚の詳細図面は秀逸。ただし、ロングフード・ドアのヒンジの向きが間違っていて、プロト2000製品はこの図面通り。アサーン製品は正しいという。掲載図面については次を参照("DE SD60"と記載)

The Guide to North American Steam Locomotives explores the fascinating history and development of steam locomotives in North America. This valuable resource also includes details on wheel arrangements and streamlining, as well as rosters, photos, and summaries and specifications for hundreds of locomotives.
• 400+ black-and-white photos, including detail and action shots
• Historical summaries of more than 77 railroads
• Profiles of locomotive makers and equipment, locomotive types, and historic locomotives
• Timeline of steam locomotive development
• 70+ rosters
• Historical and technical societies
• Recommended reading list

By 1960 steam locomotives had all but disappeared from North America's railroads, but more than three decades later they are still among the most fascinating machines ever devised. Among railroad enthusiasts steam remains the number one topic of interest, and the general public still equates railroading with steam locomotives. Why? What lay behind the romance? Steam locomotives were the machinery of transportation, the first industrial technology that was visible to every-one. Who built them? Why did railroads have so many kinds of steam locomotives−and why did locomotives differ so greatly from railroad to rail-road? What did all the parts and plumbing do? This book answers those questions and many oth-ers. It is a compact, one-volume reference book covering the development of steam locomotives in the United States, Canada, and Mexico during the 20th century.
