It has been over 40 years since the TurboTrain first rocketed to its record-breaking speeds and touched the hearts of a new generation of rail and transportation enthusiasts. Part train, part jet aircraft, the TurboTrain was the latest in ground transport innovation. But the Turbos promise of a new era of passenger travel sadly went unfulfilled. A gas turbine powered train introduced at a time of unprecedented hostility towards passenger train travel and unprecedented high fuel prices had little chance.Despite its obstacles, the TurboTrain was a success with the travelling public and, by the time the last trains were retired in 1982, Turbo was running at over 98 percent efficiency. This made it one of the most reliable passenger trains in North America. TurboTrain: A Journey is the first book ever to tell the story of the TurboTrain through history, stories and over 200 photographs (most in color), the majority of which have never been published before.
