Southern Pacific author and historian, Tom Dill continues his coverage of the vast SP system-all in vivid color! Not only are the Coast and Los Angeles Divisions covered, but also the Western Division-the major feeder to the Coast Line. There are loads of steam and first-generation diesel photographs with a touch of second-generation diesels as well.
See Santa Fe freights detouring on the SP due to the 1952 Tehachapi earthquake, demonstrator diesels working the Coast Line, and much more. A must have for steam, diesel, or Southern Pacific fans. There are many great photographs here with excellent photo reproduction.
