This book features the best photo work of the late and well-known railroad photographer Otto C. Perry from Denver as they relate to Perry's travels over a 30-year period along the former Nebraska Division of the Union Pacific Railroad. This main line division extended from Council Bluffs, Iowa, across portions of Nebraska and Colorado, to Cheyenne, Wyo. Ninety-two black-and-white illustrations from the years 1925-1958 include the last of steam, early diesels and classic streamliners along the Overland Route. This title, published in cooperation with the Great Plains Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society, also seeks to help promote the construction of a railroad viewing platform at Grand Island, Neb.

Praise for this book:

"There are two reasons you will want to add this book to your railroad collection: (1) Its a very interesting and well-done book and (2) part of the sales price from the book will be used to finance the observation platform in Grand Island at the U.P. /BNSF crossing which all of us will take advantage of sooner or later -- especially with the BNSF building a 2nd elevated main across the U.P."

--Dick Schmeling, The Main Line, newsletter of the Lincoln Railfans Club
