Product description

The Contemporary Diesel Spotter's Guide

A comprehensive reference manual to locomotives since 1972

Including rebuilding, upgrading, and leasing programs

2nd Edition

by Louis A Marre

"What diesel is that?" you ask. "Is it a GP49? GP50? GP39X?"

The unit is too new to be listed in the roster you have - or is it old enough to be in the roster, but it has been sold and renumbered since the roster was published. This book helps you identify diesel locomotives from such spotting features as hood shape, truck type, and the location and number of fans, louvers, and doors. This book contains brief histories of major locomotive builders, discussions of locomotive rebuilding programs and locomotive leasing, and a section that tells how railroads choose their locomotives and assign them to service.

This book covers locomotives produced or rebuilt since 1972. Locomotives built before 1972 are described in The second Diesel Spotter's Guide (published by Kalmbach in 1973 and long out of print) - and in Diesel locomotives: The first 50 years, by Louis A. Mare, scheduled for publication by Kalmbach in late 1995.

The book is in very good condition.

The book has minor wear along the top and bottom of the spine.

The front hinge has creasing and wear at the bottom.
