Alabama Railroads is the first comprehensive, illustrated history of the railroad in Alabama. Cline traces the development of all the major lines as well as the most prominent short lines, from the day in 1832 when the first horse-drawn cars rolled over primitive tracks at Tuscumbia, until the night in 1971 at Sylacauga when the final operating order was issued for one of the 20th century's most famous streamliners. Along the way we meet the varied cast of colorful characters who pioneered the railway system that serves the state today. With more than 100 rare and vintage illustrations from the 19th and early 20th centuries, Alabama Railroads places Alabama's rail heritage in a national context and allows students of southern history as well as railroad enthusiasts to view this Deep South state from an entirely fresh perspective.
Wayne Cline earned a master's degree from The University of Alabama and has had a diversified career in business, government, and education.
