Ghost Railroads of Nebraska: A Pictorial is a book about the Nebraska railroads that people have long forgotten about.
This book recounts the decline of the steel roads that once tied many cities and villages together in economic prosperity. Using photos, text, and maps railroad historians Michael B Bartels and James J Reisdorff examine both history and impact of railroad abandonments on agriculture-oriented Nebraska.
There is also a a look at current efforts to maintain rail freight service to many towns, and what historic artifacts have been preserved. If you want to know more about Nebraska railroads this book is a really informative read.
