Don Wirth hardcover
This book is written by renown Frisco steam authority Don Wirth, and
features a classic black & white study of the steam power employed
by the St Louis – San Francisco Railway in the 1930s & 40s.
The book is predominantly
black & white with some colorized shots as well as coverage of Don’s
personal favorite 4-8-2, #1522. The photos are all action shots from
Don’s private collection of negatives, including Joe
Collias, as well as William K Barham, Lucius Beebe, Ivan Oaks, R.S.
Plummer and others. The study will be in locomotive numerical order,
with Don’s knowledge of each class of locomotives and train operations,
and will end with a tribute to 1522.
