Photographing the Last of SP Steam in 1957
Author: Westbound

This is the cover of the just published SP Trainline magazine, issue #150, showing business car #150, the Sunset. Very informative article & photos cover this half million $ car placed in service in 1955. 

An eleven page article with photos covers those little known weeks in January 1957 when steam was called back into action on several regularly scheduled trains.  It's a great magazine and well worth the effort to find and buy a copy. Published by the Southern Pacific Historical & Technical Society, website: www.sphts.org

I got my copy the other day. The two articles you mentioned were very good reading.  This has become my favorite railroad magazine and credit to John Signor for putting together a beautiful publication.
