Eastern Oregon Shortline Railroads
Stock #: KB11282
Author: Jeff Moore

SOLD OUT

Most of Oregon east of the Cascade Mountains is a raw and inhospitable land, largely the product of recent volcanic activity. Railroad builders constructed a couple mainlines skirting the edges of the region and some branch lines into agricultural communities, but found very little else to attract their interest. Over time, however, a small collection of interesting shortline railroads built or bought rail lines, either in conjunction with the developing timber industry in the Blue, Ochoco, and Wallowa mountains or to connect a few existing communities with the mainline that bypassed the town. This book tells the stories of these small railroads and the roles they played in the development and economies of the region; covered railroads includes the Big Creek & Telocaset; City of Prineville; Condon, Kinzua & Southern; Idaho, Northern & Pacific; Klamath Northern; Oregon & Northwestern; Oregon, California & Eastern; Oregon Eastern Division of the Wyoming/Colorado; Sumpter Valley; Union Railroad of Oregon; Wallowa Union; and others.Soft cover.

Eureka and Palisades: The Biggest Little Railroad in the World
Stock #: KB11269
Author: Gregory J. Maxwell

List Price: $79.95
Karen's Price: $69.95

Brand New! ~ Introductory Price !!  

This new book tells the story of the narrow gauge Eureka & Palisade and its successor, the Eureka Nevada. Persevering through floods, fires, and the ebb and flow of the mining industry it served, the E&P was born in the bonanza era of Nevada mining and ran until the Great Depression and declining metal prices shut it down. Before that end, it hauled millions in gold, silver, and lead through the sagebrush covered hills of Nevada, cementing its place in the annals of great narrow gauge railroads.

The E&P used everything from brand new, ornately-painted Victorian era locomotives and cars, to a motley collection of secondhand, thirdhand, and homebuilt equipment to soldier on in the 1920s and ’30s. The saga of the E&P is told in exquisite detail in 10 chapters of comprehensive text, 450 photos and illustrations, 41 maps, and 18 equipment drawings. Also included is a complete and detailed equipment roster, extensively illustrated. Hard cover.
