Pacific Electric Cars; A Pictorial Journey 1911-1953
By David Coscia and Joseph Strapac
The Pacific Electric Railway, organized in 1901-02 by Henry Huntington and carried on after 1911 by a new corporation of the same name, owned by the Southern Pacific, was closely aligned with Southern California’s history and economic development. This book addresses the forty-two years -1911 to 1953- that the “new” Pacific Electric Railway operated electric-powered passenger and freight trains in southern California. The authors had access to extensive photo files illustrating PE cars and their operating environment and selected the most effective for use in this book, with three major goals: to illustrate all the major classes of cars and locomotives acquired by the new PE after 1911 (as well as providing representative images of “legacy” cars inherited from predecessors), to provide detailed, informative picture captions that can both stand on their own and provide the seeds for future research. Hard cover.

Pacific Fruit Express
By Anthony W. Thompson, Robert J. Church and Bruce H. Jones
The book has been re-issued as a second edition. A number of corrections and additions were made in the text, and improved photographs were included in some cases; the total number of corrected pages is about 100. Furthermore, 56 new color images, as well as tabular equipment summaries, were also added, bringing 32 new pages to the book. In all, about a third of the pages in the new edition are new or revised. There are now 744 total photographs in the book (64 in color), along with 52 drawings, maps, and other graphics. A triple-width foldout map of the PFE system by cartographer John Signor is retained. Publication date was August 15, 2000. This new edition returns a classic book to print in a bigger and still better version of one of the standard texts about railcar and operations history. There is no comparable book about any North American freight car fleet, and few with even similar coverage of both history and operations of the company.

Pullman Standard Freight Cars 1900-1960
By Edward S. Kaminski
Pullman-Standard was for some years the largest freight car builder in North America, though the Pullman name is perhaps more famous for passenger cars. This long-overdue book fills a gap in builder history, and provides an overview showing a selection of the many cars built over a 60-year span. The Pullman Company began to build freight cars in the 19th century. Merger with Haskell & Barker Car Company in 1921, and with Standard Steel Car Company in 1930, greatly expanded the capacity of Pullman, as both those companies already produced many thousands of cars per year. To reflect the latter merger, the name of the car manufacturing company became Pullman-Standard.Pullman-Standard was particularly noted for pioneering the use of welding in freight car construction. Starting with experimental cars in the late 1930s, by 1947 new, standard designs would be introduced. First was the PS-1 box car, which sold in the tens of thousands, then came the PS-2 covered hopper, the PS-3 open top hopper, and finally the PS-4 flat car and PS-5 gondola. All benefited from Pullman-Standard's conversion to assembly-line techniques of mass production. At different times, Pullman-Standard had plants in Chicago; Hammond and Michigan City, Indiana; Butler, Pennsylvania; Bessemer, Alabama; and Worcester, Massachusetts. The book coverage extends to 1960, by which time the heavy freight car construction demands of the post-World War II period were ending. This work accordingly addresses the great bulk of Pullman-Standard's output in the 20th century. Ed Kaminski is well known as an authority on freight car builders, and this book takes its place alongside his earlier work on American Car & Foundry, Magor Car Company, and the Gregg company. It contains a rich trove of some 418 photographs, most never before published, from Pullman and Pullman-Standard, and also from predecessors Haskell & Barker, Standard Steel Car Company, and Tennessee Coal, Iron & Railroad Company. Like Ed's previous works, this book is an authoritative historical survey. It will be of interest to anyone who likes railroad history, but it will be of particular value to those whose enthusiasm is freight cars. This is an important complement to other books on this subject, and also stands as a fascinating history in its own right. 192 pages, 418 Photographs (59 color), Graphics, Index, Hardcover.
