This follow-up to their informative work on Santa Fe's Los Angeles Division Depots covers the structures between Barstow and San Francisco, California.

The historical and photographic compendium includes, in addition to the original San Francisco & San Joaquin Valley Railway, the Randsburg and Sunset Railways and trackage jointly owned or operated with the Southern Pacific. This includes the Mojave to Kern Junction segment via Tehachapi Loop; and the Arvin, Porterville-Orosi, Richgrove, Oil City and Treadwell branches.

But this is not just a book about depots, it is a history of the Valley Division, and includes AT&SF Railway train, ferry steamship and bus operations, interlocking towers and Fred Harvey service. There are also updates regarding the San Joaquin Valley and Tulare Valley railroads as well as Amtrak.

This publication, including rare timetable and depot drawing reproductions, is a valuable research tool for historians, modelers and railfans alike.
