The Modoc: Southern Pacific's Backdoor to Oregon ~ by Jack Bowden and Tom Dill
The Modoc: Southern Pacific's Backdoor to OregonSouthern Railway Diesel Locomotives and Trains 1950-1982
"The fascinating story of mountain railroading on Southern Pacificís Modoc line which ran from Klamath Falls, Oregon to Fernley, Nevada, crossing four major summits, with a 140 mile helper district. This line was the last mountain holdout for the beloved SP cab-forward Mallets as well as the more conventional AC9 engines. As late as 1956 one could still go to this remote corner of California and see three of these behemoths struggling in tandem to wrestle a heavy, tonnage train up Sage Hen hill."

Mount Mitchell - Its Railroad and Toll Road ~ by Jeff Lovelace
Mount Mitchell - Its Railroad and Toll Road

"Short line mountain railroads are often miracles of construction. Built primarily for shipping logs, the Mount Mitchell Railroad was no exception. Within a span of 21 miles, the road climbed 3,500 feet, but utilized only three trestles and nine switchbacks, while maintaining a grade of five and a half percent. In this richly illustrated work the author brings to life a time when Mount Mitchell was dressed in virgin timber. Access to the mountain, located in Western North Carolina, was slow and difficult; but after completion of the railroad, a timbering industry was born. The railroad also provided tourists with scenic trips along its rugged contours."  ~ Overmountain Press
