"It is felt that the following photographs, plans, and data on the locomotives of the Burlington Route will add to the enjoyment and knowledge of those who wish to study an era in railroading now past....To make a well-rounded story, a section on the development of the Burlington System has also been included....The book should be of particular interest to scale-model locomotive builders. The locomotive plans included are representative of Burlington motive power....For those discriminate persons who wish to build accurately detailed models, the assignment sheets list the accessories (feedwater heater system, stoker type, etc.) used on each locomotive."--From the authors' Foreword.
