White publishes new book on Cincinnati trains

John H. White, Jr., historian and adjunct professor at Miami University, has written On the Right Track: Some Historic Cincinnati Railroads, published by the Cincinnati Railroad Club.

The illustrated book covers steam railroads of the 1820s, the premier Little Miami Railroad, which began in 1841, suburban travel, rail cargo shipping and the Cincinnati Southern Railway.

White, former curator of transportation at the Smithsonian Institution, has written a dozen other books on transportation, including Cincinnati, City of Seven Hills and Five Inclines.

The book is available from the Cincinnati Railroad Club or at local bookstores.
