I would term this book as an outline of the history of the Union Pacific Railroad. It starts at the beginning with the Pacific Railroad Act of 1862 to today's UP. There are B&W photographs from various archives, color reproductions of timetables and advertising and color photographs of post-WWII equipment. This is a little bit more than most coffee-table books as the author has good knowledge of the subject. The photo reproduction is sharp and the pages are of high-quality stock.
