Please read: Effective March 1 2023, we will raise our shipping charges. We have absorbed several postal increases during the past couple years and it is time to make a change. There will not be much change for those ordering on-line as the web calculates shipping charges based on weight, distance, and class of mail service.


For mail and phone orders, charges are based on the number of items ordered, not weight. Charges for single-item orders will increase from $6 to $7. Additional items will be charged at $2 per item. For example, if you order a single DVD, the charge will be $7. If you order two, it will be $9. This will also give us the opportunity to send more items via priority mail. (Last year, all multiple 2023 calendar mail orders were sent priority mail, greatly reducing shipping time and mis-handling.)


We have received back from dealers six (6) 2023 Rio Grande calendars. They are available only for on-line orders, one to a customer.

By David M. Bernstein

The San Antonio Division stretches 1,289 miles from Glidden to El Paso, Texas, and southward to the Rio Grande Valley. This territory encompasses the vast expanse of western Texas, the ports of Corpus Christi and Brownsville, the rich agricultural lands of southern Texas and the urban centers of San Antonio and El Paso. While focusing on the final four decades prior to Southern Pacific’s merger with the Union Pacific Railroad in 1996, Southern Pacific’s San Antonio Division: 1960-1996 also contains detailed history of the companies and lines constituting the San Antonio Division. For continuity, the small portions which constituted the Austin and the Houston Division in 1960 have been included.

The author worked in SP’s Operating Department from 1979 until 1994 and was granted access to company files, records and internal memoranda. This book is a very detailed and well researched insight into the operation of the San Antonio Division. Included are 480 photographs, many depicted in full page size, 25 maps and 24 detailed yard and terminal diagrams.

This is the first comprehensive book published on the San Antonio Division and will appeal to anyone interested in the history and operations of the Southern Pacific. Two future companion volumes are planned, the first covering the Dallas and Austin Divisions, the second covering the Houston and Lafayette Divisions.

600 pages, 11" x 8 ½" library bound with dust jacket, 480 photographs, 25 maps, 24 yard and terminal diagrams.
