About the Book
This is the 12th volume of Southern Pacific Forever's Photographic Diary of the Railroad series. Over 2100 photos explore the railroad as seen through the eyes of Southern Pacific Forever. In addition to the regular photographs of the current state of the railroad is a look back into 35 mm times with photos from 1998 to the mid 2000's seen from coast to coast and acquired through trades with other railfans. Also, a look into artist group MF's work on the rails and a special section showing all the Golden West Service cars caught by SPF. As usual, it's a lot to look through, 440 pages of fun. Take a glance at the preview and I hope you enjoy SPF's latest release.
I have a passion for the railroad, some say addiction, but I prefer the former. I've been lucky enough to travel around the country and Canada to watch trains and meet other young enthusiasts like myself. I'm a fan of art and love the country, and todays railroad holds both quite well. At the present time I live next to a large railyard and am fortunate to have plenty of opportunities to photograph railcars daily. So, until I find myself living under the Thailand sun, I'll be resting patiently beneath the California sky waiting for another line to come rolling by.
