Now 40% off the original $80 cover price!

The history of this part of the Union Pacific is complex. It is all here, from the predecessor railroads, through Depression and war, to the many postwar changes and adjustments.

UP's trackage included connections at the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles, the suburban branches and the intricate passenger arrangements needed to serve the territory.

Since his retirement from UP, author Jeff S. Asay has devoted much of his time to researching and writing about railroad history, as well as devoting numerous hours volunteering at the California State Railroad Museum in Sacramento.
