ForestRails: Georgia-Pacific's Railroads
by Russell Tedder
ForestRails is a story of railroads and the role they played in the growth of Georgia-Pacific, a major forest products company. From the early beginnings, railroads have been absolutely essential in the delivery of raw materials and shipment of finished products of the forests. Such was the case with Georgia-Pacific’s railroads. Just as man does not live on bread alone, railroads could not survive without freight to haul. Thus it is necessary for this story to also tell the parallel stories of G-P’s acquisitions that included the railroads. Georgia-Pacific aptly described itself as the growth company over the years. Beginning in 1927 as a small lumber dealer, the company grew in the last half of the 20th century to become one of the leading manufacturers and distributors of forest products. Georgia-Pacific’s phenomenal growth was mainly through acquisitions of existing companies which included extensive railroad logging and short line railroad operations. By 1900 lumbermen had recognized the efficiency of a steel wheel on a steel rail and the number of logging railroads grew rapidly. The coming of the railroads freed lumbermen from being tied to the river banks and dependency on weather conditions. Railroad logging could be operated year round with little or no interruptions from the weather. Railroads also made large areas of timber accessible that could not have been logged before. G-P’s acquisitions have included 16 common-carrier short line railroads and five major private logging operations. Each short line was a separate subsidiary company of Georgia-Pacific. Although governed by boards of directors, the short lines were separately operated at arms-length due to government regulations. The author does not purport to analyze the financial and economic aspects of the Georgia-Pacific railroads. Although the railroads were profitable, it would be impossible to quantify the precise economic benefit of the railroads to G-P from financial statements alone. Instead, the operational characteristics of the railroads and, more importantly, their vital support of the logistics processes of the company’s mills, plants, and distribution systems are explored in depth. To be included in this story, a railroad must have been owned or operated by G-P at some time during its existence. The history of each railroad is then told from its beginning. Certain unique and creative arrangements for preserving rail service at mills on non-company railroads are also discussed. This story is an important part of American business history. Color and B&W, 464 pages, Hardcover.

From Grand Central to Albany New York Central’s Water Level Route
By John Ham w/Rail Historians Roger Liller & E.C.Dauner
Over the years numerous books have been produced depicting trains along the old New York Central Main Line between New York City and Albany.  Early ones deal mainly with locomotives and equipment roster shots with some fine scenic views tossed in here and there. More recent publications deal with modern day diesel and electric trains.  Other books have focused on the Penn Central, Conrail, Amtrak and MTA years. This volume focuses on the Central's "Glory Years" using a multitude of magnificent steam and early diesel photos taken along the Water Level Route by some of the most noted rail photographers of the 20th Century.  Many of the images have not previously been published. 
This volume contains not only superb New York Central photos, but images of connecting railroads and industries of all sorts that were served by the Central in one capacity of another.  There are even little known mining railroads included in this volume.  Over 650 images cover this trip up the scenic Hudson Valley. 336 pages, 650 Photos, Hardcover

From Main Lines to Logging Lines : West Coast Steam Railroading in the 1950s
By Charles H. Givens
What heady times existed for the railfan in the early 1950s. Steam was still king (although diesels were making their presence felt), short lines abounded, and there were still important logging lines feeding the Northwest mainlines. Even the SP narrow gauge was busy. Come ride with us now as we share Charles Givens’s 1950s pilgrimage to these citadels of steam railroading, from the mighty SP and Santa Fe to the always-runner-up WP, to the Georgia Pacific and the Arcata and Mad River, and many other stops that help us realize what railroading was like to the young fan of the day. Were that we could have been there with him. 128 pages, 223 Color photos, 10 B&W photos, Hardcover.
