A railroad that spared no expense to attract passengers, and then spared no effort to drive them away. A look at Southern Pacific's passenger service from the postwar period to the Amtrak era.
There is a nice 4-page section on riding the REDWOOD (NWP's RDC train). Also included are some scenes on the Rock Island.
