"The Southern Pacific Trackside at Transition is a personal pictorial of the face of railroading during the transition
years of one of the West’s great railroads.
"As a youngster the author, in the company of his mother, traveled the
system in search of photographic locations and interesting power. Included in this look at his lifetime of
photography are several other railroad companies and short line railroads that author Armstrong covered during his travels. This book contains 224 black and white and 145 color photos - most of which have never been published.
Through his photography, the author gives you a glimpse of railroading in the west."
