City systems featured include Atlantic City, New Jersey; Lynchburg, Norfolk, Richmond, and Roanoke, Virginia; Savannah, Georgia; and Capitol Transit, Washington, D.C.

THE SOUTHERN STATES VOLUME II offers in-depth coverage of the Baltimore & Annapolis interurban line, including Baltimore Terminal scenes, action at Annapolis, multiple-unit trains, a tour of the line, and high-speed onboard and trackside sequences.
