All S.P. freight steam locomotives were designed with the requirements of this route foremost in the minds of the locomote designers. Any locomotive able to perform over Donner could perform credibly on any other route in the system. Most of the photgraphs presented were taken by Will Whittaker, or otherwise from his collection. 180 pages of black and white steam locomotive photographs, mostly of cab forwards, with photo information. Fine in fine and bright dust jacket. An as new copy.
