About This Item

Wilton: Central Valley Railroad Publications 1982. (4to) 310pp. Very good plus, no dust jacket. Dark green leatherette with gilt lettering to the cover and spine. Illustrated photographic endpapers, plans, photographs, tables, six fold-out plans. Photocopies of 8 pages substituted where the pages left blank; a charming letter signed by the author explaining how to attach the replacements laid in. "The cab-forward, exclusive trademark of the Southern Pacific for nearly half a century, was the outgrowth of the company's superb engineering department. Fortunately, though the echo of syncopated exhaust has now been gone for many years, many of the men that have now attained high ranking official positions in the general offices were themselves involved in the design, development, operation and maintenance of the road's modern steam power" - from the Acknowledgments. Book about Articulated Locomotives. (Transportation, Southern Pacific Railroad, Trains, Transportation).
