Published since 1868, The Official Guide of the Railways covered rail and marine passenger services across North and Central America. Although the network was much-reduced by the 1930's Depression and private motor-vehicle and airline competition, this edition from August 1952 still runs to 1,500 pages and shows a largely-dieselised network before the major cutbacks in passenger services of the late-1950s.
