NOTE: We have recently learned that Jeff Ainsworth, author and owner of Monte Vista Publishing, passed away on October 16, 2023. For months, we have been unable to obtain Monte Vista books, but now find that his relatives have acquired Monte Vista's inventory making books available to dealers  once again. There will be no new Monte Vista books, but we will continue to sell previous volumes as long as supplies last. We have learned that Pacific Electric volumes 9 and 10 are now available. We will put them up on our web site when received.

SANTA FE TO THE BAY/Flynn-Salsig

Default Title: $1,282.00 TWD

IN STOCK AND SHIPPING!

At first glance, this is an album of the photography of the late Gerry Salsig. But is more than that. It is a labor of love, written by a friend who grew up with the photographer—a testimony of an eye witness and his friends as they made a journey typical of that made by many of us who, while growing up, became fascinated with the railroad known as The Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe. Not only does it describe the innocence of several friends from the East Bay area of San Francisco as they began to explore their railroad world and experience the sights, sounds and people connected with it, but the author, Patrick D. Flynn—who later became a dispatcher employed by the Santa Fe—adds considerable depth from an insider’s point of view as to how Santa Fe operated the west end of the Second District of the Valley Division under time table and train-orders over a three-decade period beginning in the mid-1960s and on into the mid-1980s.
