Steam Over Donner by Duncan Still (Hardbound)
Monte Vista Publishing’s inaugural hard cover book is a chronological and pictorial history of Donner Pass by Duncan Still. Using his extensive collection of Southern Pacific black & white steam photographs - many by the late W.C. Whittaker - the author shows via text and photography how steam locomotives battled “The Hill”. Included are several uncommon photos of main road power with point helpers, swing and/or rear helpers from the late 1930s to the mid 1950s. Cab Forwards, from an early AC-3 to the very latest AC-12s. The dust jacket is a full color painting by Ernie Towler of SP AC-8 #4180 as it crosses the Long Ravine trestle with an eastbound reefer block. 176 pages with over 150 mostly action black & white photos 10.5 inches wide and 6.25 inches tall (some photos even larger), in-depth text on steam operations.
