Cabinet 6: Railroads on Parade
Edward Hungerford, Transport for War 1942-1943. New York: E. P. Dutton, 1943.
Ernie Webbers library is a collection of books on the history of transportation, with special emphasis on railways and tramways. Here in one volume is Edward Hungerfords morale-boosting narrative on the problems and performances of transportation in a wartime America. Countless examples of American rail achievements are detailed, including the facts that after Pearl Harbour, the railroads delivered an average of 6000 carloads of material per day to Government camps, and some 34 million gallons of oil a day from the Southwest. Some of the US rail systems who were involved in the war-effort are represented in the trademarks guide displayed.
