Although much has been written about the Union Pacific, much remains -- and this massive and handsomely done book presents many hitherto unpublished photographs and facts to paint a vivid picture of the pre-eminent railroad of the West and the great Cheyenne terminal it built on the plains of Wyoming. The size of the book is impressive, with many of the images reproduced full-page, dramatically encompassing the reader with their detail and clarity and the sweep of the book is equally impressive, covering every aspect of the Cheyenne scene from 1868 to the present. Although the initial focus is on steam, diesel is not neglected once it arrives on the scene. There are special sections on Sherman Hill, named trains, and portraits of famous trains. With several yard maps and diagrams. 386 pages with index. 596 photographs. Fine Condition. Express Press 1987. This HB and DW is in like new condition. Oversized (16"x11"). Due to the large, bulky nature of this book, we are unable to post it and so it is only available for those who can collect from us from an event we attend, from our premises, or by some other arrangement.
