•••• The Southern Pacific and the KM has just been released by the SPH&TS. Before we ever received our first supply of this book, SPH&TS notified us that they would no longer sell the KM book to its dealers. Luckily, our shipment will cover all our back orders, but we will not be able to obtain additional copies. Therefore, we have removed this title from our web site. This is the third time SPH&TS has done this to its dealers and as a result we have now severed our relationship with SPH&TS books and will no longer handle any of their titles once our current stock is depleted.
••••White River's new Western Pacific book authored by Ted Benson, Dick Dorn, Dale Sanders, and Dave Stanley, Western Pacific's Final Decade 72•82, is now in stock and shipping, $69.95.
••••All six of our 2015 calendars are now available: Santa Fe, Union Pacific, Rio Grande, BNSF, CSX, and Norfolk Southern.

IN STOCK AND SHIPPING. The SPH&TS is proud to announce the publication of Southern Pacific Lines Across Texas and Louisiana, 1934-1961, by Joe Dale Morris with George C. Werner. 

The States of Texas and Louisiana and the Southern Pacific Railroad grew up together. In 1853 the Buffalo Bayou, Brazos & Colorado, the first railroad in Texas was opened; and in the same year the New Orleans, Opelousas & Great Western, the first component railroad of the T&NO in Louisiana was opened. Soon, thirty- four other railroads were built in Texas, forming nine predecessor roads, and nine railroads were built in Louisiana, forming five predecessor railroads. In 1927 the Espee leased all of the predecessor roads to the Texas and New Orleans Railroad and finally in 1934 all of the leased companies were merged into a single company. In 496 pages, including a historical review of the companies, and over 900 black & white and 80 color photos, taken by 50 of the nation's finest photographers, 15 illustrations, 12 maps in full color, a bibliography and index the full story of the Texas and New Orleans Railroad, the Southern Pacific Lines in Texas and Louisiana, is presented.

List price $90, hardcover, 900 b&w and 80 color photos, 504 pages. SKU: SPTXLA. Posted 9-21-12.
