Book & Map Shop

This page, in association with Amazon.com, will feature books and maps about railroad stations and Ohio railroading in general. Lots of pages have Amazon links but I have taken the time to add books and maps of specific interest to visitors of the Existing Ohio RR Stations Page. I will add books and maps as I have time and discover new ones worth listing. Amazon has great prices on books and I get a small commission from any sales that come from this page. I don't plan to get rich from this but rather raise enough money to help pay for the web space to continue to expand the Existing Ohio RR Stations site by offering more photos and info. Email me with any books on stations, railroads, or Ohio history you have read and recommend.

Books by H. Roger Grant

Author: H. Roger Grant Title: Ohio's Railway Age In Postcards (1996)
1884836194_m.gif (11207 bytes) This is by far my favorite book on on Ohio stations and I highly reccomend it to any Ohio depot fan or history buff. It is basically a photo (postcard) album of Ohio stations from the turn of the century. There are 102 different stations pictured in the book (with brief descriptions), many of which are long gone. Click here to see the list of stations pictured. Grant is a former Univ. of Akron history prof., now teaching at Clemson. This book is currently on back order at Amazon, but they expect to be able to ship it to you within 3-5 weeks. Well worth any wait!

DeLorme Atlases

DeLorme Atlases are a must for any serious depotfan or railfan. Some of these offered by Amazon are not the current editions but who cares! The older the map the better when rails are concerned. Although there is no map that shows every old rail bed, the DeLorme Atlases do have quite a few and offer enough detail so you'll never get lost. It even has jeep trails if you really like to get crazy. I own four of these state Atlases and am on my second Ohio Atlas (the first was worn out from heavy use). The Ohio Atlas scale is 1:150,000 (1inch to 2.4 miles). The Amazon price on these is lower than you'll get in a store. They're perfect for any outdoor activities and those who do more than fall into tourist traps during trips. delormeoh.gif (16874 bytes)
