9780942035766: Kansas Curve

Robert Olmsted, well-known railroad photographer and prolific publisher of railroad books, has teamed up with South Platte Press to publish a pictorial about "Don Ball Curve," located in Robert's hometown of Lawrence, Kansas. Informally named for another master of railroad photography and book publishing, the curve is located along the Kansas City-Denver main line of the Union Pacific. Using Robert's own excellent b&w photography, the book is devoted to the Union Pacific and Rock Island trains (the latter using trackage rights) that have rolled through Don Ball Curve between 1948 and 2007. It can also serve as a guide for railfans interested in visiting Lawrence and the Curve with its current high volume of train traffic. 68 B&W photos.
