This fact-filled reference book by noted Union Pacific historian Jim Ehernberger covers more than 400 place name stations along the Union Pacific Railroad in Nebraska. Included are 232 black and white photographs of depots, roundhouses, coal chutes and various other structures.
Ehernberger's research will prove very useful to anyone seeking information regarding what kind of service facilities were located at both main and branch line stations, dating back to the UP's earliest years of serving Nebraska. Autographed by the author, this book has been made available to South Platte Press for distribution.
The book is organized alphabetically with statistics provided for locations such as water tank capacity, milepost, station base dimensions, year constructed and retired, turntables and capacity, stock pens, etc. Many photographs are from the days when the stations were in service rather than later years.
