Union Pacific's Streamliners (Great Passenger Trains)

Union Pacific's Streamliners (Great Passenger

Union Pacific is America’s most popular railroad. The first to create a transcontinental railroad link in 1869 in conjunction with the Central Pacific, UP was also the first U.S. railroad to create a modern streamlined passenger train. Sleek, quiet, powerful, and fast, the lightweight streamliner set a new standard for luxury on the rails.  This authoritative, illustrated history follows up streamliners from 1934 with the launch of the City of Salina right up to Union Pacific’s ceding of passenger service to Amtrak in 1971.    Award-winning rail author Joe Welsh examines the fleet of “City” trains that followed the Salina, all connecting Chicago to their namesakes with revolutionary equipment and diesel motive power on breakneck schedules. In addition to detailed looks at the trains, readers are treated to their various forms of motive power and rolling stock, and their unparalleled services. Dozens of black-and-white images and period color photos depict the City of Portland, City of Denver, City of Los Angeles, City of San Francisco, and City of St. Louis along, with period ads and route maps to complete the picture.  Images also detail the opulent furnishings and impeccable service that distinguished America’s premier passenger line--from uniforms and dinnerware ...

City of Los Angeles, Union Pacific Streamliner

City of Los Angeles, Union Pacific

Union Pacific's City of Los Angeles crosses the spectacular terrain between LA and Chicago, a worthy rival to the famous Santa Fe Super Chief. We start in Los Angeles under skies so clear its almost possible to touch the crystalline tips of the San Gabriel mountains from the steps of Union Station. We track the City of Los Angeles from the ground as it buckles down to ascend Cajon Pass with 5 roaring E units. The Wasatch Range in Utah and the Rockies in Wyoming follow, each of them white with winter. Leaving in early dawn from Ogden, Utah the streamliner clings to the canyon wall above the boiling Weber River. The snow deepens as it transits the Gateway and speeds accelerate to 75 mph. Just beyond Echo, with a sharp left around a 2000 foot cliff, the train starts to climb to the Aspen Tunnel in earnest and finally tops out some 3000 feet above Ogden. The streamliner then crosses 4 hours of emptiness from Green River to Laramie sometimes at allowable speeds of 90 miles per hour. Under the black rolls of a coming storm it climbs Sherman Hill on the old line and continues down to Cheyenne, with many shots from the cab. The beautifully photographed finale of this DVD shows another dramatic run on Sherman Hill. This was to have been the final run of UP's 8444 in 1970 and features ...

Classic Railroad Signals: Semaphores, Searchlights, and Towers

Classic Railroad Signals: Semaphores, Searchlights, and

Explore the history, quirks, and stories behind signals with gorgeous period and contemporary photography.Railroad signals are the link between the steam era and modern railroading. Designed for reliability and durability, signals can survive for decades. In fact, old semaphores installed during the early years of the twentieth century were still in service during the 1990s, protecting trains that were running with the latest modern diesels. Even searchlight-style signals that were the epitome of 1940s railroading continue to work today.Though standards were introduced in the early twentieth century, interpretation varied greatly among railroads, so even major railroads have individualized signals. Some, such as the Pennsylvania Railroad, were noted for their distinctive signaling hardware. Others lines became known for their peculiarities in practice.Classic Railroad Signals examines how different railroads developed specific hardware to serve their unique needs, in the process tracing the lineage of various types of hardware and highlighting how and where they were used. From nineteenth-century mechanical signals to disc signals, upper- and lower-quadrant semaphores, three-light electric signals, searchlight-style targets, positional lights, and color-position light hardware, a...
