Along the Union Pacific System: 1932

This 44-page booklet is loaded with well over one hundred black-and-white photos and roughly 40 sketches illustrating various historic times or events. The text describes not only the main UP routes from Omaha to Ogden, Ogden to Los Angeles, and Green River to Portland, but also Kansas City to Cheyenne, Ogden to Butte and Yellowstone, Pendleton to Spokane, and Portland to Seattle.

The “Union Pacific System,” explains the inside back cover, consists not only of the Union Pacific Railroad (Omaha to Ogden), but the Oregon Short Line (Green River to Huntington, Oregon), Oregon-Washington Railroad and Navigation (Huntington to Portland and Spokane), Los Angeles and Salt Lake, and St. Joseph and Grand Island Railway. Like some other rail publications of the era, this one has the “front cover” that is pictured above on the back.
