After the Civil War, the Louisville and Nashville Railroad took
the lead among southern railroads in developing rail systems and
organizing transcontinental travel. Through two world wars, federal
government control, internal crises, external dissension, the
Depression, and the great Ohio River flood of 1937, the L&N
Railroad remained one of the country's most efficient lines. It is
a southern institution and a railroad buff's dream. When eminent
railroad historian Maury Klein's definitive History of the
Louisville and Nashville Railroad was first published in 1972, it
quickly became one of the most sought after books on railroad
history. This new edition both restores a hard-to-find classic to
print and provides a new introduction by Klein detailing the
L&N's history in the thirty years since the book was first
