Iron horses to Promontory by Gerald M Best( Book )

2 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In picture and text this book tells of the locomotives involved in the building of the first transcontinental railroad and its completion with the driving of a golden spike into a laurel tie at Promontory Utah, May 10, 1869. The rolling stock is described; the locomotive builders too long neglected, are presented and the writer brings to the reader interested in the Pioneer West, many "happenings" along the line which have hitherto not been published. This book also includes many rare and unpublished photographs of construction times, locomotives, and scenes along the route by such acknowledged cameramen of the time as Andrew J. Russell, S. ). Sedgwick, Charles 11. Savage, and Alfred A. Hart. There are maps, timetables and documentary reproductions, a complete roster of motive power of the Central Pacific to 1891 mid the Union Pacific to 1885 and scale model drawings of Central Pacific No. 60 Jupiter and Union Pacific No. 119
