The original of this book was privately printed and privately distributed in very small quantities in 1892. It is among the first efforts made on American soil to take account of wind resistance in the design of a train and thus among the first American attempts at what would later be known as streamlining. While Adams’ ideas didn’t receive general acceptance, he did find some sympathy and his work ultimately resulted in the Baltimore & Ohio Windsplitter, a train that was actually built to Adams’ design and actually operated briefly on B&O tracks. This book is thus of no small historic value, a harbinger of things to come.
