Returning to print in a revised edition is the fourth volume in the series about Southern Pacific box cars. Like the other volumes in the series, it covers roughly 1865 to 1965. Box cars were the most numerous car type on the SP, so this car type dominates many yard and train photographs. This is the complete history of SP's box cars, from the 25-foot, 15-ton cars of 1865 to the 86-foot auto cars of 1963, and much more, including special cars such as the black Overnight box cars.

Some minor errors have been corrected, and more photos added, to create this revised edition. It is now 16 pages longer. Any historian or modeler interested in the Southern Pacific will want to own this big book. Hard cover. more»
