Features more than 140 photos from Abbey's collection which are either previously unpublished or rarely seen of the FT."--As war loomed in 1939, American railroads were on the precipice of transformation. The FT was a diesel-electric, semi-streamlined frreight engine that would establish a new standard for reliability, flexibility, and cost. Abbey explores the history and evolution of the FT, the train that put an end to steam locomotives in the US.
