Katy Northwest: The Story of a Branch Line Railroad
"Katy Northwest will be of interest to scholars who are concerned with the economic, social, and political ramifications... of all light railroad branch lines... Will be warmly received by rail buffs and by loyal friends of the Katy." --from the Foreword by John W. Barriger, Special Assistant, Federal Railroad Administration, and former president of the Katy
"If you are coming to this book for the first time, dive in! If you're picking it up again after an absence, welcome back. The Northwest District may be gone, but it lives forever here." --Fred Finley
More than just a history of a branch line railroad, this is a premiere book, with not only facts and figures, but also excellent historical writing. It details Katy Northwest's birth, maturation, and decline as well as the devastating effect of its death on the communities it served.

this is a VERY WORDY book. It could have been written in 1/2 the words that were used. I mostly skimmed it. It was interesting to see how bad the physical plant was of the Katy. It's surprising the line lasted as long as it did. Read full review
