This is a complete diesel locomotive roster of the Southern Pacific and the
Cotton Belt from 1965-1996, including the transition to the Union Pacific. This volume contains over 200
photos; at least one illustration of every diesel model used on the
SP/SSW between 1965 and 1996. There is a detailed, unit-by-unit listing of every
SP and Cotton Belt locomotive that operated between the renumbering of
1965 and the UP takeover in 1996, including every rebuilding, number change,
retirement, sale for scrap, and resale for service.
This book also includes Union Pacific
information on former SP locomotives, including all renumberings,
retirements, scrappings and resales up to mid-2007.
