Robert "Photobob" Morris has been photographing the Southern Pacific since 1959. Having started in his teen's, Bob's larger-format images are an extraordinary record of the changing face of the Espee from the 1960's to its final days in the 1990s. The book features large photo reproduction, one image to page. The accompanying text by Robert J. Zenk explores the content in detail and provides rich historical background. The text also shares some of the Photobob stories behind the photos. From Donner to Dunsmuir, Commutes to beet trains, Alco PAs to SD70Ms, from the Cal-P to the NWP and from freight ops to locals and legendary passenger trains, "Photobob's Espee" is a long awaited collection by one of the finest western railroad photographers. Over 45 years of Southern Pacific photography, covering the 1960s through the 1990s, with more the 210 images, over 30 of them in color.
