Otto Perry and the Union Pacific Nebraska Division by Michael M. Bartels and James J. Reisdorff.
This book features the best photo work of the late and well-known railroad photographer, Otto C. Perry from Denver, as they relate to Perry's travels over a 30-year period along the former Nebraska Division of the Union Pacific Railroad. This main line division extended from Council Bluffs, Iowa, across portions of Nebraska and Colorado, to Cheyenne, Wyoming.
Ninety-two black-and-white illustrations from the years 1925-1958 include the last of steam, early diesels and classic streamliners along the Overland Route.
This title, published in cooperation with the Great Plains Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society, also seeks to help promote the construction of a railroad viewing platform at Grand Island, Nebraska.
