A fine square and tight copy in a very good clean and tight dustjacket/brodart covered, first edition. Small light color spot top edge. Dustjacket is clean and bright but has a very small piece missing from the back top edge, a few small tears, and tiny chips to the corner fold. Otherwise, this is a very nice copy.

About this title


Volume IV of Encyclopedia of Western Railroad History is dedicated entirely to California. Detailed company descriptions include dates of operation, miles of track, maximum grade, gauge, rail weight, and the histories of thousands of locomotives. The information in the book was gleaned from federal and state government data, and newspapers of the period.

About the Author:

Donald B. Robertson was born and reared in Nampa, Idaho. He was a proofreader for the weekly newspaper in high school and during the summer of 1941 he worked on the local section gang of the Union Pacific. The war years, 1942-46, were spent in the merchant marine where he was ship's purser. In 1948 he graduated from University of Idaho. Railroad history became a hobby about 1968 and became a serious advocation in 1970.
