This excellent book on Union Pacific cabooses is a must-have for Union Pacific fans and caboose fans. Beginning with the earliest cabooses on the UP, wooden 4-window cupola-less cars, to the steel slogan-bearing cars used until the common demise of the use of cabooses in the 1980s, and to the second-hand cars acquired with the demise of the Rock Island and the various mergers, its all here!

Cajon Pass
Stock #: 13627
Author: Alice Eby Hall

List Price: $21.99
Karen's Price: $20.95

California’s two east to west mountain ranges, the San Gabriel and San Bernardino, prevented commerce east between two-thirds of Southern California and the rest of the state. Cajon Pass, the low point between the two ranges, was first opened to business by roads that generally followed old Native American trails. When railroads pierced the divide in 1885, Northern and Southern California and states to the east benefitted. Even today, the Burlington Northern Santa Fe and Union Pacific Railroads run their busiest freight transport tracks through Cajon Pass.
