When it first appeared in 1967, the Diesel Spotter's Guide by Jerry A. Pinkepank brought much-needed organization to the sport of diesel spotting in North America. Subsequent guides have covered the evolution of the diesel-electric, including Diesel Era's The Contemporary Diesel Spotter's Guide, 2000 edition. Now, more than 40 years after the original guide was published, authors Louis A. Marre and Paul K. Withers have teamed again to update The Contemporary Diesel Spotter's Guide, putting a Diesel Era "spin" on the newest edition. The year 2008 edition will help you identify diesel locomotives from such spotting features as hood shape, truck type, and the location and number of fans, louvers, and doors. Offered in our standard 6" x 9" size for easy carrying in the field, this 248-page perfect-bound book contains more than 500 color photographs. It is a must for railfan and model railroader libraries alike.
