Central American Holiday by Gerald M. Best. Prepared under the auspices of the Pacific Coast Chapter of the Railway & Locomotive Historical Society, this book is intended as a guide to the then existing narrow and standard gauge railroads of El Salvador, Guatemala and Mexico. In 1960 one could still see steam in all its variation, from ancient American type 4-4-0s to the latest Baldwins. This book describes each railway's locomotives and the rail line in admirably clear fashion. Railroads covered include the Ferrocarril de El Salvador, the International Railways of Central America, the Ferrocarril Unidos de Yucatan, the National de Tehuantepec, Vera Cruz street cars, Ferrocarril Mexicano, National de Mexico (3' and standard gauge), the Pacifico and the Coahuila y Zacatecas. Illustrated throughout with excellent black and white photos, rosters and full page color maps. 1960, staple bound, 80 pages, illustrated, excellent condition.
