About this Item

In 1958 the Southern Pacific abandoned its Black Widow freight livery and colorful Daylight passenger livery in favor of a more economical paint scheme of Lark gray and scarlet for all power. Coinciding within a few months of the image change was the end of the first-generation of dieseldom, even though that particular phrase had not yet been coined. The first diesels to also be delivered in the new livery were also SPs first low-nose hood units. The book picks up the story of SPs diesel power where Southern Pacific in Color Volume 2 left off. Contents: Announcing the Scarlet, pp. 6-15 Old Units - New Colors, pp. 16-19; The Second Generation, pp. 20-39; Monster Quest, Big Boys, Double Diesels, pp. 40-45; 1965 and Beyond, pp. 46-55; The SD45, pp. 56-59; Riding the Cotton Belt, pp. 60-63; More and More Six Motors, pp. 64-89; Renumbered Widows, pp. 90-91; The ALCOs of Avondale and Elsewhere, pp. 92-97; Switching to Scarlet, Basic Geeps, pp. 98-107; Power to the Passengers, The SDP45, 108-128 Includes Rosters, Maps.
