I hesitated to purchase this book thinking that it might be a rehash of
the authors' first book "The Long Island Rail Road 1925-1975". It was
not! The abundance of new photographs was a delight ( 2 per page). Text is written under or to the side of each photo making hunting for text specific to a photo unnecessary. In this book, greater emphasis is placed on diesels in service between 1955-1975. There is good coverage of ALCO models RS1 and RS3, C420's, and S2's. Coverage of Morris Park shops is excellent. The extremely dangerous "gauntlet" track is discussed with a photo of one, as well as the "cabaret" and business cars in service at the time. This book is another Keller & Lynch winner.

The disasters of 1950, the destruction of the Rockaway Division, and the lost opportunities to "link" all of Queens and Brooklyn with rapid transit through the LIRR and BMT have always been an interest of mine

I bought the first book. Indeed the book is not bad but this is more of a two volume set than stand alone books. I was hesitant to buy the first book because of this and my fears were realized. I truly understand, having worked in publishing the effort that it would take to redo this as one book, however to be fair they should be called volume one and volume two and offered at a discount if you buy both.

The book is well made. I noticed that someone complained about the quality of the printed photos. I can assure them the photos are printed fine, based on the book I bought, the first book, The Long Island Railroad. The source material is the problem.

So quality is not an issue.

I would like to have this book as well but that means the cost would be almost forty dollars for the two books and I would really expect more in a forty dollar book, more pages more info more photos color photos.

So the books are over priced for what they are, It is not worth buying both books. I expected more information about locomotives owned rolling stock used, and information about trackage, both passenger and freight.

However the books are indeed Images of rail. That is all. Great photos, good captions, but short on history.

If you will be happy with the B&W photo these books are for you. If you want more of a history look elsewhere.

In the edition I bought (from a source other than Amazon), much of the photographic reproduction is poor - so poor that many of steam locomotive wheel arrangements can't be determined even from side-on pictures taken in broad daylight. I own dozens of Acadia Publishing books, and this book is by far the worst in terms of picture quality. For example, I know that Long Island Rail Road G5 class steam locomotives are Ten-Wheelers, but I can't tell that from the two photos on page 34.

The pity of it is that authors Keller and Lynch have found some real photo treasures: the Baldwin-Westinghouse diesels #403 A-B are usually shown in builder's photos in other Long Island Rail Road books, but on pages 47 and 48 we see "Mike and Ike" in service.

As the other reviewer correctly noted "Revisiting..." does not duplicate pictures in the author's earlier "Images of Rail: The Long Island Rail Road." If, like me, you simply must own everything published about the LIRR, by all means buy the book. But think about whether you can live with the muddied photo quality. Acadia really did the book's authors a disservice.
