Railroads Of Nevada And Eastern California, Vol. 3: More On The Northern Roads

David Myrick's monumental railroad histories have become essential reference works for railroaders, historians, and hobbyists. His previous two volumes on the railroads of Nevada and Eastern California provide a rich record of rail transport in the region, including independent roads, short lines, and narrow-gauge roads, as well as many ephemeral roads built to serve mines or construction projects.

Lavishly illustrated with period photographs and maps, and rich in historical detail, they are a major contribution to the transportation history of the West. Volume III contains additional information about the northern roads, including some not covered in previous volumes, and about developments since the publication of the first two volumes in the railroads of the region. It provides new facts gleaned from the recently discovered correspondence of Collis P. Huntington, one of the builders of the Central Pacific and Southern Pacific railroads. It also covers roads connected with the lumber industry and the construction of electric power plants, and Southern Pacific branch lines, including some that never advanced beyond surveys. The book is illustrated with over 300 photographs, many never before published, and route maps.

Once again, David Myrick's far-reaching research has produced an invaluable record of the development of rail transportation in the Far West. This final volume to his study of the roads of Nevada and Eastern California is a fascinating history of western railroads and the region they helped to build.
