I've wanted to get the Mexican Narrow Gauge book for years, but it's been out of print so long, it's hard to find a used copy that does cost an arm, a leg, and a few internal organs. I wish someone would reprint it.

One of my favorite books in any subject is "The Empire Road" by David Haward Bain. It's THE definitive account of building the Transcontinental Railroad. In addition to providing enough background to put the events into context, he also had access to a great deal of personal correspondence that had never been studied before. I found it very stirring.
