Southern Pacific Lines Standard Design Depots
Stock #: KB10781
Author: Henry E. Bender Jr.

List Price: $70.00
Karen's Price: $59.95

The Central Pacific and Southern Pacific railroads, like many railroads, had a number of standard designs for depots. In the late 19th century a series of these began to be assigned numbers, later designated as Common Standard numbers. Eventually there were 26 of those designs, though some designs were built rarely and others had dozens of examples throughout the system.

But in addition to these numbered designs, there were other de facto standard depot designs, ranging from early board-and-batten depots, to the handsome colonnade designs of the 20th century. This book presents the history of all these varied designs, and lists the town or location where they were built, as far as is known.

The book is illustrated with an extensive trove of depot photographs, showing many examples of standard depots, and variations and modifications of them. The work is also richly furnished with citations to sources, making this an authoritative account of its subject. The author has worked for years to collect and collate detailed information on this subject, and the thorough and complete coverage reflects that effort. Noted railroad artist John Signor painted the cover image of a train approaching the Number 1-design depot at Pinole, California. Hard cover. more»

Stock #: KB10667
Author: Joe Dale Morris with George C. Werner

List Price: $90.00
Karen's Price: $74.95

The States of Texas and Louisiana and the Southern Pacific Railroad grew up together. In 1853 the Buffalo Bayou, Brazos & Colorado, the first railroad in Texas was opened; and in the same year the New Orleans, Opelousas & Great Western, the first component railroad of the T&NO in Louisiana was opened. Soon, thirty-four other railroads were built in Texas, forming nine predecessor roads, and nine railroads were built in Louisiana, forming five predecessor railroads. In 1927 the Espee leased all of the predecessor roads to the Texas and New Orleans Railroad and finally in 1934 all of the leased companies were merged into a single company. In including a historical review of the companies, with over 900 black & white and 80 color photos, taken by 50 of the nation’s finest hotographers, 15 illustrations, 12 maps in full color, a bibliography and index the full story of the Texas and New Orleans Railroad, the Southern Pacific Lines in Texas and Louisiana, is presented. Hard cover.
