Dear Lists,
The spring and summer 2007 issues of the N.R.H.S. Bulletin arrived last week within days of each other. The issues included reviews of the following books which I'd like to make non-N.R.H.S. members aware of:

Florida Railroads in the 1920s by Gregg Turner.

Vital Rails; the Charleston & Savannah Railroad and the Civil War in Coastal South Carolina by H. David Stone, Jr.

Streetcar to the Jungle: Trolleys in the Streets of St. Petersburg, Florida by Robert A. Stanton

Other books off-topic that may be of interest.

The Big Legacy of the Union Pacific Big Boy; Why Railfans Still Love the “World’s Largest” Steam Locomotive by James J. Reisdorff and Michael M. Bartels.

Where Water Meets Land: Historic Movable Bridges of Connecticut by Bruce Clouette

Union Pacific Steam Survivors by Lloyd E. Stagner with Bob Yarger
