The Iconic AC-9 Class

Southern Pacific Cyclopedia Vol 2

By Jack Herris, Scott Inman.

Color laminated softcover, 8.5x11", 152 pages, 174 photographs. 2019.

"This book features a photographic anthology of Southern Pacific's AC-9 class articulated steam locomotives.

"Unlike SP's famous cab forwards, the AC-9 class was designed for operation as coal burning engines on the Rio Grande Division. Ordered shortly after SP's streamlined Daylight locomotives, the dozen AC-9s from Lima also featured a skyline casing and were the only semi-streamlined articulated engines ever produced.

"Many previously unpublished images are supplemented by historical information, technical specifications, and tender records."
