Chasing the SP in California


By Rod Crossley.

Cloth with dust jacket, 8.5x11", 276 glossy pages, 500 sharp, clear b/w photos, bibliography, index. 2011.

"A vivid and personal pictorial of the fascinating parade of trains across the West's first great railroad. It's a visual history of the transition period of the Espee when steam locomotives were working side-by-side with new diesel-electrics.

"While still in high school, the author began taking pictures of the locos and trains around his Southern California home town. Later, when he left his home and went north to college, he had his camera, film, and time to enjoy the last of the SP at San Luis Obispo. 500 mostly never-before-published photos as far north as San Luis Obispo, including the Pacific Electric."
