About the Book
Southern Pacific Forever's 7th book recounts the railroad sights seen during the months of June & July of 2008. This edition also displays the railroad fruits seen on a Northern California road trip along the northern half of Interstate 5.
Though this book doesn't contain an Interchange or an Artist Highlight, it's jam packed with the usual rusted metal boxcars and various rollingstock and an amazing amount of end to end's, some of the best seen rolling on UP lines. The surprises are nearly endless and the 440 pages will keep one entertained for hours, literally. But don't take it from me, take a look at the book preview or go on visit www.myspace.com/southernpacificforever to see picture samples and whatnot from previous volumes as well as this one.
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.
