Shortlines of the Desert Southwest: Arizona-Nevada-New Mexico-Utah by Jim Shaw. This second title by noted rail photographer, Jim Shaw, features an in depth look at the many shortlines operated in the Desert Southwest; Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah between the early 1960s and present. There are nearly thirty shortlines presented by geographical areas. Each is presented with a brief history and the many vivid color and crisp black and white photographs are comprehensively captioned. This lavishly illustrated book has a limited print run so don’t miss out. There have been many days and long hours spent searching for, chasing and photographing these elusive shortline trains. Many operate only once a day or even a couple of days per week—not the easiest train chasing! In this new title the author presents a great look at these historic and colorful shortlines.
