Here is volume two of a two volume set on the short line railroads of northern California. The general area is a scenic one and then you add colorful short line locomotives, this makes for a book with lots of color variety. Most short lines in northern California were lumber-based haulers and hauling lumber is what most of the photographs in the book will show. Not all photographs are in color, even though most are, older subjects were photographed in B&W for the time period. There are a few steam locomotives that lasted well into the diesel era and many were photographed in color. Some of those photographs made it into this book.
