Among the most scenic and storied parts of the far-flung Southern Pacific system was the Coast Line between San Francisco and Los Angeles. First completed in 1901, it was witness to every aspect of the evolution of the SP in the twentieth century. Large cities and small towns, rich agricultural fields and rugged mountain passes, and mile upon mile of line right along the shore of the Pacific Ocean, all typify this route. It was as characteristic and distinctive a portion of the SP as existed anywhere. 296 pages with maps, diagrams, and photographs, some in color. Map endpapers. Fine in fine and bright dust jacket.

Riassunto: Among the most scenic and storied parts of the far-flung Southern Pacific system was the Coast Line between San Francisco and Los Angeles. John Signors book about the Coast Line was published in 1995. That work presented a broad account of the history and development of the line, but inevitably much had to be omitted. The present volume enlarges and extends the story of this fascinating stretch of the SP.
Dall'editore: Two experienced and expertly knowledgeable authors present a rich trove of photographic images of this section of railroad, many from highly skilled railroad photographers of the West, most notably Richard Steinheimer. The informative coverage of the entire Coast Line, presented in detailed captions to the photographs, makes this a complete and fascinating story.
