There are numerous wonderful pictorial ads in the back for various locomotive and equipment manufacturers. Although there are no prices listed, this work can certainly be looked upon as being a trade catalog inasmuch as it offers a tremendous compilation of important designs produced by the leading locomotive manufacturers of the 19th century.
