The Texas and Pacific Railway Company (known as the T&P) was created by federal charter in 1871 with the purpose of building a southern transcontinental railroad between Marshall, Texas, and San Diego, California. The T&P had a significant foothold in Texas by the mid-1880s. Construction difficulties delayed westward progress, until American financier Jay Gould acquired an interest in the railroad in 1879

The Southern Pacific Railroad and its predecessors served Texas from 1853 to 1996. Stretching from El Paso to the Louisiana border and from the Rio Grande Valley to the Red River, Southern Pacific opened up vast areas of the state to settlement by transporting people, building materials, and livestock. The railroad fueled Texas’s economy by moving oil, timber, agricultural commodities, coal, automobiles, petrochemicals, cement, steel, consumer goods, and myriad other products. It hauled the marble that built the state capitol in Austin and the materials to build the massive seawall in Galveston. Southern Pacific also played an important role in developing the ports of Beaumont, Galveston, Houston, and Corpus Christi. This book is a photographic record of Southern Pacific in eastern Texas during the 50-year period following World War II to the 1996 merger with the Union Pacific Railroad.

The documentation is well done. I wish it had included more information about the Southern Pacific Railroad in Tyler County, Texas

An interesting read on the SP history in Texas.

I think I will pass along this book about the Southern Pacific Railroad in eastern Texas to a friend who will find this book more
fascinating than I did. I should have known it was not exactly my "cup of tea"!

David Bernstein has self-published other highly regarded titles on the Southern Pacific in Texas and Louisiana, but this is his first in Arcadia Publishing's "Images of Rail" series, and it is a terrific work! Mr. Bernstein, who now works for BNSF Ry. in Fort Worth, spent 15 years with the SP, working as a clerk, train order and interlocking operator, and finally chief train dispatcher. That experience is evident in the clear, precise and detailed captions to the more than 200 photographs included in the book, as well as in the selection of the images themselves. The focus of the book is on the Houston and Dallas divisions [the Southern Pacific east of a line from Houston to Dallas] and the Houston Terminal, or "The Hub," from the end of WWII until SP's absorption by Union Pacific in 1996. In addition to the black and white photographs, which are all reproduced very clearly, there are helpful maps of the eastern half of Texas, Houston, the Houston terminals, Dallas and Beaumont, and also a diagram and track plan of Houston's 1934 Grand Central Station. The book begins with a one page Introduction that gives a brief, but precise and clear description of the SP's corporate history in Texas, followed by a one page Time Line, and tables showing the make-up of the Houston and Dallas Divisions in 1946, and listing the discontinuance dates of selected passenger trains.
Included are photos of many passenger trains that served this area, including the "Sunbeam," "Hustler," "Sunset Limited," "Alamo," No.s 25 and 26 at various dates, powered by steam and beautiful PA's and even a rare shot of the "Owl." There is even a photo of SP's last passenger train to Galveston, shown at the Pasadena depot, and of Austin Steam Train's No. 786 under steam at Houston. All of the important towers, junctions and yards in the divisions are depicted, often showing the same location at different dates. Several pages record the Houston passenger terminal, Hardy Street and Englewood as they were developed and changed. These include striking aerials of the Hardy Street Shops and of Englewood, with downtown Houston in the background, as well as one of Beaumont from the 1950's. Every photo is credited and each caption contains precise detail on the date of the picture, the identity of the train, person, or structure shown and often gives historical background on the location itself. This may not be a full-color large format coffee table book, but it is definitely what one could call a "milk and cookies" read that will be hard to put down. The Southern Pacific Railroad in Eastern Texas will be a valuable and often-used addition to the library of any railfan, historian or modeler interested in railroading in Texas.
