MEXICAN NARROW GAUGE by Gerald Best...

http://www.abebooks.com/servlet/SearchResults?an=best&sts=t&tn=mexican+narrow+gauge

One of my favorites, this one has narrow gauge for the real nuts. Yes, it is about Mexican roads but they all seemed to use US locos-Baldwin, Alco, Porter, Cooke, etc., etc.. and different gauges-2 feet to whatever. The first Heisler was used in Mexico, the smallest Baldwin 4-4-0 (2 footer) was in Mexico City, and the NdeM ran big old 4-6-6-4's on 3 foot gauge. They look like the big locos that C&O used! It's all there and more. This is a great book for the narrow gauge lover, no matter that it is from the "South". Check it out.
