"This book features the best of the author's photography taken of the Union Pacific and Rock Island (via trackage rights) diesel era in the Topeka, Kansas, vicinity from the mid-1960s through the contemporary era. It includes coverage of passenger and freight train action in the vicinity of the UP Topeka depot, which served as an active passenger station until 1971. It is today a major rail museum known as the Great Overland Station.
"This study in black and white, of which the author is noted for his many books in this format, looks back at almost 50 years of change that have taken place along UP rails through Topeka."
