Well-done pictorial history of the Southern Pacific's 4-6-2 steam locomotives, including the San Joaquin Daylight and the Sunbeam. The author, a noted railroad writer, takes the reader on a tour from the early development of the locomotives to the later years of streamlining and then to World War II black, from passenger to freight service, and from a roster of 146 locomotives to a mere 3 at the time of the book's writing. Included is a detailed look at Pacific 2472 which was then undergoing restoration. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos. With tender and locomotive rosters, and index.
