The most historic of Southern Pacific's various railroad routes is certainly the Overland Route. Originally contemplated by the Central Pacific in 1861, this route served as part of the first transcontinental railroad in the United States. Extending 782 miles from San Francisco to Ogden, Utah the Overland Route passes through some of the most varied and spectacular scenery on the entire Southern Pacific system.

This book focuses on the period from 1940 to 1970 when the Overland Route was SP's primary link to the east. The introduction of streamlined passenger trains and the transition from steam to diesel locomotives make this a special period in which to document Southern Pacific's famed Overland Route.

Featuring scenes and extensive captions, mostly from the 1950s and 1960s, of the western portion of the first transcontinental railroad from Oakland, California to Ogden, Utah and the last of steam to the first-generation diesel locomotives.

Four Ways West Publications, hardcover, 128 pages, 8.5 x 11 x .5 in., Color photographs.
