CALIFORNIA RAILS 1950'S: A Color Pictorial
Dallas Gilbertson
Has anyone seen a copy, and is it worth getting?
Excellent book. I picked up one at Winterail. Gilbertson's color
quality is superb (he must have stored the slides in a deep, dark
cave), though a few aren't sharp. The subjects are priceless, as
the color is from the era when most were shooting B&W. I would give
it my highest rating for photo value. It's not a book of history per
se, of course, but is superb information.
