Mention the name Sherman Hill to railroad enthusiasts and images of Union Pacific's mammoth steam locomotives, colorful Armour yellow streamliners, and lonely wind-swept landscapes come to mind. Since the railroad first reached the area in 1867, 'The Hill' has been an operating challenge that demands the newest and most powerful locomotives to lift tonnage over the summit. This photographic journey not only highlights the diesel and turbine power that operated over the Hill since 1960, but also showcases the desolate beauty of this area.
