This book documents the various operations, physical plant, and locomotives of the Southern Pacific just prior to the merger with the Union Pacific. Coverage includes the Golden State Route, the SPCSL (former Alton line Joliet to E. St. Louis), ICTF (Intermodal Container Transfer Facility) and local operations on the Huntington Beach branch.

There is a chapter on the merger with the Union Pacific, locomotive acquisitions since 1986 and locomotive dispositions. A system map, extensive text and many photographs (14 pages in color) round out the coverage of the SP before UP's assimilation of the 'Friendly'.
