Railfan & Railroad
NOVEMBER 2017: Kevin EuDaly shares forty years of change alongside the Kansas City Southern, while editor Steve Barry travels to the California desert for the triumphant return of the Southern Pacific narrow gauge steamer No. 18, the Slim Princess. We swing through the northeast to explore a modern day Alphabet Route operation, then down to the Caribbean to take a ride on an old sugar plantation line in St. Kitts. All this and more in the November issue of Railfan & Railroad!
