Shortlines of the Desert Southwest-This Title is Out of Print
Hardcover, 192 pages
This second title by noted rail photographer, Jim Shaw, features an in depth look at the many shortlines operated in the Desert Southwest; Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah between the early 1960s and present. There are nearly thirty shortlines presented by geographical areas. Each is presented with a brief history and the many vivid color and crisp black and white photographs are comprehensively captioned. This lavishly illustrated book has a limited print run so don’t miss out. There have been many days and long hours spent searching for, chasing and photographing these elusive shortline trains. Many operate only once a day or even a couple of days per week—not the easiest train chasing! In this new title the author presents a great look at these historic and colorful shortlines.
