What a wealth of detail for the B&O fan. With 160 Diagrams broken out by index headings: Ballast Profiles, Bridges (10 diagrams), Buildings (14), Derails, Frogs-Guard Rails-Other Track (35), Motor cars/work equipment (9), Roadbed, Scales, Signs (25), Switches (15), Track tools/shims/plates/spikes (50) and Tunnels. There are diagrams here for just about right-of-way detail everything except signals. The index shows more than 180 diagrams were in the book at one time, but like many diagram books, pages were added and taken out as needed and there are now 160 diagrams. Dates range from 1945 to 1962, which places this book into the early 1960’s.
This is a scan of an original B&O Roadway and Track Standards Book. Circa 1962. 165 pages, 4 index pages, 160 diagrams.
