The Western Pacific was one of those underdog railroads that had a loyal following with railroad enthusiasts. The spectacular scenery, the California Zephyr, brightly painted locomotives and freight cars certainly caught many a fan's eye. This is a well-researched, high-quality book by author Jeff A. Asay. Jeff authored the Union Pacific in the Los Angeles Basin title for Signature Press. John Signor and Jonathan Signor helped with the maps and layout of this book. About 80 percent of the photographs are B&W as this is a history book using older photos with some later-day photographs in Color. You will not be disappointed in this book!
"Today, much of the WP has been abandoned and some has been sold, but the original Bogue main line from the Bay Area to Salt Lake City remains intact and in operation. This book also relates the parallel story of the Sacramento Northern Railway, an electric interurban that Alvin Krech acquired for the WP in the 1920s for its freight traffic base. Sacramento Northern suffered the same precarious ride as its parent company, and was finally merged into Union Pacific along with the Western Pacific." Hard cover.
