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.
