RAILROAD BOOK: SOUTHERN PACIFIC IN COLOR VOL3

8.5 x 11 in., 128 pages. In 1958 the Southern Pacific abandoned its "Black Widow" freight livery and colorful "Daylight" passenger livery in favor of a more economical paint scheme of Lark gray and scarlet for all power. Coinciding within a few months of the image change was the end of the "first generation" of dieseldom, even though that particular phrase had not yet been coined. The first diesels to also be delivered in the new livery were also SP's first low-nose hood units. The book picks up the story of SP's diesel power w Southern Pacific in Color Volume 2 left off.
