Description:

Diesels of the Union Pacific: The Classic Era 1934-1982 Volume 2 by Don Strack This volume is the second of several that will document the history of Union Pacific's fleet of diesel and turbine locomotives, from 1934 to today's roster. Although the current roster has been covered in two earlier works, the six-decade period that leads up to today can be split into two distinct eras. The first, the Classic Era, covers in two volumes the unit-by-unit roster from 1934, with the arrival of the first Streamliners, to 1982, when Union Pacific embarked on the first of its major mergers. Follow-on volumes will cover the Merger Era, from 1982 through UP's acquisition of the C&NW, to the 1996 merger with Southern Pacific. Classic Era Volume Two begins with the 1000-series switchers, and continues numerically upward with the road numbers to the end. Included between the two Volumes is a full chronology of the development of Union Pacific's diesel locomotive fleet, and a listing of all locomotive models and their quantities up to 1982, including retirements and dispositions to that date. Contents: Union Pacific Diesel Locomotive Paint Schemes, pp. 5-16; Locomotive Roster 1932-1982, pg. 18; Motive Power Summary, 18-151; Additional Reading, pg. 152; Diesels and Turbines in Color (22 page color photo section), pp. 153-176. Withers Publishing, hardcover with jacket, 176 pages, 8.5 x 11 x .5 in., B&W and color photographs, roster. Bookseller Inventory #
