Chicago & North Western, Milwaukee Road, Rock Island, and Union Pacific Interline Dining & Lounge Cars in Southern Pacific Passenger Trains.
This book fills in some significant gaps, and helps to explain why offline cars appeared in SP trains, where, in what service, and precisely what those car types were. Like the big series before, it’s amply illustrated with builders and in-service photos (quite a few in color), roster tables, diagrams, and technical operational background. The book starts in the gilded age of the 1880s and carries through the steel heavyweight and streamline eras until the advent of Amtrak.
