Southern Pacific Passenger Trains (Great
Brian Solomon. Well into the 1950s, the Southern Pacific operated an extensive fleet of colorful (a color scheme nicknamed "daylight") and highly-regarded passenger trains that became the preferred mode of travel for the West Coast's nouveau riche film stars and businesspeople.

Archival photographs depict the trains on their routes from Portland to the Bay Area, Los Angeles and on through the desert Southwest to Texas and New Orleans. Also depicted are SP uniforms, dinnerware, stations and terminals, and interior views of cars.

Southern Pacific Official Color Photography, Vol.
"A stroll through the color photography archive of the Southern Pacific reveals some extremely interesting equipment. Taken by the road's marketing, purchasing, and public relations departments mainly during the 1950s and 60s, this first volume is a 100% company photography and thus not a comprehensive look at the road's roster. Plenty of piggyback and truck photography for the rubber-tire enthusiasts!"

The 4300 4-8-2's: Southern Pacific's Mt-Class
Among Southern Pacific's most capable steam engines were the 4300-series Mountain types. Crews always described them as "the best general purpose locomotives on the railroad." Most of them were built in SP's own Sacramento Shops. In the days of steam, they were workhorses in fast passenger and freight duties. Here is the complete story of these engines, from their design and development, through construction, maintenance and modification, to their extensive service assignments and performance. A rich collection of technical data, drawings, and photographs complements the detailed and thoroughly researched text. But this is much more than a history of one engine type. Also encompassed by this book are many aspects of SP locomotive philosophy, construction methods, shop practices, and operating patterns, as well as train assignments across the vast SP system. Newly revised from the first edition, with 24 additional pages and 40 new photographs, an index and references, and an expanded chapter on tenders, this is a significantly enlarged book. Its numerous additions and improvements from the original version make this edition even more authoritative and complete.

The Visalia Electric Railroad: Southern Pacific's Orange Grove
"From its beginnings in 1904 until abandonment of most trackage in 1992, the Visalia Electric Railroad had a fascinating history. Built as an electric line which pioneered 15-cycle alternating current in the United States, it operated orange interurban cars along its 30-mile route until 1924. Serving the Sierra Nevada foothill region of eastern Tulare County, the VE became a local fixture as towns and agriculture developed. "From the outset in 1904, the Visalia Electric Railroad had all its stock owned by the Southern Pacific. Primarily serving the growing areas east of Exeter, branches extended eastward toward Sequoia National Park, and southward to Strathmore. After passenger service ended in 1924, electric freight operations continued until 1944. Thereafter, diesels provided service, from GE 44-tonners to handed-down SP Alco and EMD switchers. Loss of perishable traffic finally doomed the line, and the last significant trackage was abandoned in 1992. "In its heyday, the VE carried out a variety of operations, all described in this volume, from passenger excursions and commuting, to electric and gas-electric freight service to numerous packing sheds along the line. Though owned by Southern Pacific, many aspects of operations were locally controlled until 1964. Ownership of loco...

The Majesty of Big Steam
Relive the romance and power of the steam locomotive era, the product of a century of continuous research and development. In the United States, the final decades of steam power were characterized by very large and capable locomotives. Beginning in the 1920s with Alco's three-cylinder types and Lima's "Super Power" concept, steam locomotive design crossed new thresholds of power and efficiency. A host of new wheel arrangements combined with innovative technology and new materials to create a final generation of refinement. Lima's Berkshire of 1925 demonstrated the value of the four-wheel radial trailing truck in its ability to support a firebox large enough to supply high power and fast running. Within a few years the 2-10-4 Texas, 4-6-4 Hudson, and 4-8-4 Northern had led the way, and by the late 1920s, large modern articulated types were taking shape. The Majesty of Big Steam is full of these late-era locomotives, the last generation of steam power before the diesels took over. Dramatic photos show Berkshires, Hudsons, and Northerns at work, as well as massive articulateds at their finest. Witness New York Central's Great Steel Fleet being whisked along behind some of the most refined American-designed engines. See Southern Pacific's cab-forward oil burners crest the California ...
