Buildings and structures of American railroads is a reference book for railroad managers, superintendents, mechanics, engineer and architects. This book was digitized by Google and available for viewing online or downloading it as a PDF.

It is particularly useful for scratch builders as it contains plans and elevations of the various lineside railroad structures, from the humble shanties to the more complex depots and platforms. Each structure has a brief historical perspective, dimensions making it a valuable tool for creating models.
