This is the follow up book to The Northern Pacific Railroad of McGee and Nixon. Warren McGee and Ronald Nixon, both employees of the Northern Pacific Railroad, were also avid railfans. This book is a collection of some of their best photographs of all railroads in the Pacific Northwest, from 1930-1970.
Included are: Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific; Great Northern; Northern Pacific; Spokane, Portland & Seattle; Union Pacific; Butte, Anaconda & Pacific; Spokane International, and a complete section of color photographs! You'll see steam locomotives ranging from smaller engines to massive articulated mallets, as well as diesels and diesel electrics. Each locomotive photograph is identified both by type and by number. A very interesting feature of this book is the anecdotes added by Warren McGee to some of the photographs.
