Book Description Morning Sun Books. hardcover with jacket. Condition: New. The Western Pacific was an interesting railroad in terms of its history, operations, facilities and equipment. It earned the respect of many perhaps because of its David vs. Goliath image as it competed head to head against the vastly larger Southern Pacific or in part to its attractive orange and silver locomotives, or the California Zephyr and its run through the Feather River Canyon, or even to the lowly boxcars, many of which were adorned with a colorful feather logo.
