Shade Tree Books, 2000


Over 300 GP9 units (and a single GP7) were the backbone of the Southern Pacific locomotive roster from their introduction in 1954 through the 1960s. They ran everywhere: on commutes, switching, sugar beets, you name it. Some still work for short lines and industrial railroads;
a couple have been preserved. 180 photographs in B&W plus a roster.
