This is a follow up book to California Locomotives: Short Line Steam in the Golden State.
As the steam locomotives were retired many of the same short lines moved on to diesels, the ALCO and General Electric products are presented in this book. Future titles will present the other manufacturers. Many of these locomotives were rare and remote and therefore seldom photographed.
