If you can find it, Richard Prince's book on the Southern's steam locos is a must-have. Curt Thompson's books on steam and diesel may be worth a look as well.

Looks like you have a great knowledge on transport books.
Looking for historical data on Robert Macy Naval Architect and
Engineer. Wrote a lot of books on ship safety. I would like to
locate a historical history of his career including times at
Ingalls Shipbuilding. Also noted for designing the Ingalls 4-S
diesel loco in 1946. This loco probably ran on Southern trackage
out of Decatur where the Iron Works associated factory (Birmingham
Tank Co), appears to have been located on the Southern Railroad

Southern Railway: The Road of the Innovators by Burke Davis is
like that. You may also enjoy "The Great Richmond Terminal:
Foundation of The Southern Railway" by Maury Klein. They can
be found for reasonable prices in used bookstores (or online
at Alibris, Abe's Books, or sometimes Amazon and eBay).

Hello, I am
interested in reading about the history of Southern Railway. Can
anyone suggest a book like this? I did an online service and it
mostly brings up illustrated history books, but I am looking for
the stories about the operations, management, mergers, etc.
Something like a novel, but non-fiction of course. Thanks!
