North American Railroad Family Trees. Here is an infographic history of the industry’s mergers and evolution. The history of railroading in North America is a story of brute force that stamped thousands of miles of train track across a rugged continent. This book offers an unprecedented series of visual “family trees” tracing decades of convoluted mergers, acquisitions, bankruptcies and expansions that have resulted in North American railroading. Brian Solomon presents the information in a clear, graphic format, helping the railfan make sense of the many smaller train lines that shaped the rail industry as it is today.
