This is not a textbook or an engineering manual. It is written for people who might be curious about the manmade aspects of the landscape but who have no particular expertise in technology. It's a book for browsing and nibbling, a book for answering questions. Most of all it's a book that invites you to look at pictures and ask "What's that thing?". Chapter 12 covers U.S. Railraods.
