On the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, locomotives were always considered of great importance, and the railroad was involved in many experiments and innovations. The name Tom Thumb is forever associated with the B&O, as the first steam locomotive built in the United States for an American railroad.

They handled the last years of war traffic and served ten more years, hauling fast freights, coal trains, and even some passenger runs over the heaviest grades of the B&O. This book documents their life in photos, drawings, and maps, as well as mechanical and operational information.

Книга Baltimore & Ohio's Magnificent 2-8-8-4 EM-1 Articulated Locomotive (Великолепный Сочлененный паровоз дороги B&O 2-8-8-4 EM-1). Автор Thomas W. Bob Withers.

The Baltimore & Ohio EM-1 was a class of 30 Baldwin-built 2-8-8-4 "Yellowstone" type articulated locomotives that the B&O used well into the end of the steam era. Two more of the same type were built, intended for use on the Bingham and Garfield, a Utah copper mine road, but for some reason were never delivered. Their numbers were 7600 to 7629, and were renumbered in 1956 as 650 to 679. The last of them had their fires dropped in April 1960, marking the end of steam on America's first railroad.

This is the story of B&O’s last steam locomotive class, the fabulous EM-1 2-8-8-4 simple articulated, which B&O bought during World War II. Although B&O wanted diesels, war-time restrictions prevented it from ordering any and the EM-1s were built instead. They handled the last years of war traffic and served ten more years, hauling fast freights, coal trains, and even some passenger runs over the heaviest grades of the B&O. This book documents their life in photos, drawings, and maps, as well as mechanical and operational information.

The 2-8--8-4 EM-1 was one of the most powerful steam locomotives ever built. The book does justice to this steam giant. There are hundreds of excellent quality black/white photos many of which show the EM-1 in action. The captions in many of the photos tell when & where the photo was taken. It also contains historical information on the locomotive. As a model railroader & collector of articulated locomotives, I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves the big steam era.

I am please that I purchased the book. It is well illustrated with numerous photos of the EM-1s in action.
I purchased it because I had just purchased two n-scale models of the locomotive and felt it would add to my enjoyment of the models. I recommend to any fan of B&O or EM-1s.

Satisfyingly nostalgic to a locomotive lover.
Probably repetitious to all others.

Many great black and white photos of these beautiful brutes in action, although quite a few are from the same location and its vicinity.
This book has done a good job of documenting the EM1 through it's long career on the B&O. Many great pictures and captions. Lots of close up shots for the model railroader and the detail-oriented individual. There could have been a bit more content but overall I would say it is a good buy.
