Just what fans of the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific will love. Great black & white, and color photos of the Rock providing passenger service, the various steam and diesel locomotives, and passenger rolling stock. A MUST HAVE!

Good book, with nice pictures. Don't be fooled, it is not a complete history. It does cover passenger trains reasonably well. For instance, the Golden Rocket in partnership with Southern Pacific was stillborn. The cars were divided and ran on their parent railroads without the red and stainless paint scheme as part of whatever consist they made up, but not as the CRIP-SP Golden Rocket. There are a number of good, clear pictures and I feel it to be well worth the price. The foreword/ history by the author was especially appropriate.

This is a really good book for your Rock Island library. The book has really good pictures of stations and trains. I model the Rock Island in the earlier years, but if you like the Rock in its final years then you will enjoy this book. Great value.
