Union Pacific Big Boys in Action
By J.J. Reisdorff & M.M. Bartels
Photos from the James L. Ehernberger Collection
"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. 80 pages, B&W, Softcover.

Union Pacific in Southern California 1880-1990
By Donald Duke
This book covers historically the building of the lines, and all the important events that happened to the Los Angeles Terminal Railroad, the San Pedro, Los Angeles & Salt Lake Railroad, and followed by the Union Pacific Railroad. This volume covers the early days, the steam locomotive era, and up through the coming of diesel motive power. Featured pictorially in action views are motive power and equipment from early steam, late steam and diesel freight and passenger trains plus stations, yards, roundhouses and shops. Contents: Los Angeles Terminal Railroad, pp. 7-14; San Pedro, Los Angeles & Salt Lake Railroad, 15-36; Union Pacific Takes Control, pp. 37-154. If you are looking for in-depth text on the history of this route, this is not the book. The book basically is an overview of the history followed up with many b&w photographs (many by Duke) and extensive captions.

Union Pacific in the Los Angeles Basin
By Jeff S. Asay
Southern California was only one corner of the Union Pacific system, but the story of the railroad in that area is fascinating and surprisingly complex. It began in the 1880s with the predecessors of the Los Angeles Terminal Railway, extended through the San Pedro, Los Angeles & Salt Lake Railroad, begun under the ownership of Senator W.A. Clark and then jointly owned with Union Pacific under E.H. Harriman, continued under the name Los Angeles & Salt Lake, until eventual absorption into Union Pacific system. The story extends through the 20th century to the Southern Pacific merger of 1996, with some details, such as the Alameda Corridor, down to the present day. Part of this fascinating story is the relationships with the other three major railroads in the Los Angeles area, Southern Pacific, Santa Fe and Pacific Electric. Those relations varied between cooperation and vigorous hostility, with each of the railroads taking turns at the opposite extreme from the others at different times.

Union Pacific Steam Survivors
By Lloyd E. Stagner with Bob Yarger
Union Pacific Steam Survivors examines the status of 52 still-extant Union Pacific steam locomotives. Most were given either to communities or museums, while a few were retained by the railroad for its own corporate collection. The Union Pacific is unique among large Class 1 Railroads that donated old locomotives in that it has continued to maintain two operative steam engines, the 4-8-4 No. 844 and the 4-6-6-4 No. 3985. The majority of preserved UP steam, however, will continue to be on static display in community parks and museums, where they -- especially those at outdoor display sites -- need regular maintenance. Steam historian Lloyd E. Stagner relates the service history of these locomotives, while steam preservationist Bob Yarger comments on how these machines can be saved for long-term posterity. Together, the authors provide an informative and illustrated guide on what can be done to save some of these historic relics of another transportation age before it's too late. 48 pages, B&W, Softcover.
