This volume concentrates on the locomotives and rolling stock purchased or leased to keep trains running. Hand-written ledgers provided notations about maintaining this equipment through breakdowns, wrecks, and safety modifications. Photographs illustrate a large quantity of the various changes from 1890-1951. A chapter on Motors and Galloping Geese contains revealing details as changes were made updating the Pierce-Arrow bodies. Victor Miller's former C&S cars are extensively illustrated. Volume XII includes roster charts of all equipment, along with 17 color photographs, 490 black-and-white images, and 47 detailed drawings on 416 pages.
