Mansions on Rails: The Folklore of The Private Railway Car (Hardcover) by Lucius Beebe


Another epic work from Beebe showcasing the luxury train cars of the day and the personages who rode them. (He himself owned two so he was the perfect author for this.) Illustrated throughout with black and white photos and schematic diagrams of the cars. Tipped in full color frontispiece of The Virginia City, one of Beebe’s cars, done up in a style described as “Venetian Renaissance baroque.” With Appendix of Pullman business & private cars built at Pullman 1882 through 1930 as well as a list of private cars handled by the Florida East Coast Railway in 1894. 382 pages.

Book is in good condition but dust jacket has obvious wear and tear. See photos.
