Un - Driving of the Golden Spike
Stock #: KB10858
Author: Jeff Terry, Thornton Waite, James Reisdorff

List Price: $24.95
Karen's Price: $21.95

A ceremony that transpired in the high desert region of northern Utah on May 10, 1869, marked the conclusion of the greatest technological achievement of America in the 19th Century. The completion of the first Transcontinental Railroad was celebrated by the driving of the Golden Spike at Promontory Summit.

Seventy Three years later, on September 8, 1942, the Golden Spike was 'Un-driven" at Promontory Summit during an unusual ceremony that largely replicated the original event in reverse. The tracks were then torn up for military use during World War II, whereafter promontory was largely forgotten. This is the illustrated story of the Un-Driving of the Golden Spike in 1942 and the various personalities involved with this unique event. It is also the remarkable story of a century long struggle to have America rediscover the historical significance of Promontory Summit, which culminated in the establishment of today's Golden Spike National Historic Site.

List Price: $36.95

New!   Introductory price!

2019 marks the 150th anniversary of the completion of the first transcontinental railroad (May 10, 1869-May 10, 2019) and noted author John Kelly felt this was the perfect time to look back at some of the most important milestones and defining moments in the long UP history. The author has culled through a huge archive of material to concentrate on six decades that showcase the many important roles UP played in the building of America. Helping bring life to the story is an array of photos with extended captions as well as vintage Union Pacific timetables, travel brochures, dining car menus, postcards, tickets, maps and advertising.

Coverage includes:

  • "Building the First Transcontinental Railroad" chronicles one of the greatest epics in American history.
  • "All Aboard for Yellowstone" showcases Union Pacific’s Grand Circle Tours with trains to Zion, Bryce Canyon and Yellowstone National Park during the lively 1920s.
  • "Tomorrow’s Train Today" highlights Union Pacific’s M-10000 and “City” streamliners to Portland, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Denver in the 1930s.
  • "The Strategic Middle Route" salutes American soldiers during World War II and the legendary North Platte Canteen in the 1940s.
  • "Along the Union Pacific" tracks "City" Streamliners and Domeliners during the 1950s and 1960s, and the end of Union Pacific passenger service in 1971.
  • The final chapter features notable photos of Union Pacific steam, diesel, and gas turbine-electric locomotives, plus a full-color image of Union Pacific’s Heritage locomotive fleet. Soft cover.

Union Pacific Big Boys in Action
Stock #: KB10992
Author: James J. Reisdorff and Michael M. Bartels

List Price: $24.95
Karen's Price: $23.95

"Big Boy," the world's largest steam locomotive, is in the news as Union Pacific Railroad plans to restore one of these behemoths to operative condition. In anticipation of the event, this book covers the engine class between 1941 and 1959, when Big Boys were in regular service in Utah and Wyoming. Coverage is mainly given to those eight Big Boys now preserved at museums and municipalities across the U.S. This pictorial examines how Big Boys were extensively documented by both professional and amateur railroad photographers who came to the Wasatch Mountains and Sherman Hill to see big UP steam before it was "too late." The book shows some of the best action photography taken of Big Boy as provided from the collection of UP rail historian James L. Ehernberger. Also included is information about the photographers, critiques of their images and a descriptive year-by-year time line of Big Boy operations. Soft cover.
