"This book features a photographic anthology of Southern Pacific's AC-9 class articulated steam locomotives.
"Unlike SP's famous cab forwards, the AC-9 class was designed for operation as coal burning engines on the Rio Grande Division. Ordered shortly after SP's streamlined Daylight locomotives, the dozen AC-9s from Lima also featured a skyline casing and were the only semi-streamlined articulated engines ever produced.
"Many previously unpublished images are supplemented by historical information, technical specifications, and tender records."
