The Railroad at Pocatello (Idaho)
Stock #: KB10745
Author: Thornton Waite

List Price: $21.99
Karen's Price: $19.99

Pocatello was founded as a station on the narrow-gauge Utah and Northern Railway in 1878, and it has been a railroad town ever since. Passenger and freight trains arrived and departed in all four directions of the compass, 24 hours a day. The Union Pacific also built extensive shops at Pocatello, where railroad equipment was serviced, maintained, and repaired. In addition, refrigerator cars were iced from a large icehouse, and railroad ties were treated with preservative at a tie plant. The advent of the automobile, improved roads, new technologies, and the introduction of the diesel-electric locomotives all combined to change the railroad industry, affecting Pocatello in many ways. Passenger trains were discontinued, the steam-locomotive-servicing facilities were closed, and shop buildings were torn down. However, the railroad in Pocatello remains a vital part of the local scene today, with freight trains continuing to run through the city day and night.

Author Bio: Thornton Waite is interested in the history of railroads, especially in Idaho, and has written several titles and numerous articles on the subject. In this book, he combines extensive research with vintage photographs to illustrate the railroad’s importance to Pocatello for over 125 years. Soft cover. more»
