"Jack Herris has written 25 books on WWI aviation; this is his first railroad book.
"Scott Inman has been a life-long historian, author, and modeler of the Southern Pacific. Growing up, Scott witnessed the twilight of the once-mighty Southern Pacific Empire while photographing the corporation throughout California. Documenting railroad operations over Donner Pass, chasing West Side Beet Trains out of Tracy, and watching locals pass through his hometown of Elk Grove, California provided Scott one of the last opportunities for his generation to witness the Grand Ole Southern Pacific. He has served on the Board of Directors of the Southern Pacific Historical & Technical society since 2011."
