"Mr. Hungerford, an author and printing company owner, traveled California and the west from one end to the other focusing on the action of the Southern Pacific Railroad's main lines, branch lines, narrow gauge, Nacozari Branch and interchange railroads.

"Harold Stewart, a Motorman with the Pacific Electric and later a Locomotive Engineer with the Southern Pacific, traveled throughout the west photographing the SP and other railroad companies.

"98 percent of the book is of steam locomotives at work. Good photos of the Magma Arizona, Pickering Lumber and Ferrocarril de Nacozari also.
