A stunning collection of photographs of the United States' most famous railway - Union Pacific Railroad, an American icon.
One of the giants of American railroading, the Union Pacific Railroad serves a huge swathe of the Mid and Western United States, from the Great Lakes and the deep South to the Pacific coast. The vast array of locomotives, over 8,000, and diversity of loads combined with ever-changing scenery make for fascinating viewing and photographing. One minute you can be watching as a fast hotshot double-stack intermodal train carrying as many as 300 containers flies by at over 70 miles an hour, moments later and the local goods is in view, dropping a wagon or two into the local factory complex. This collection of photographs, mainly in the south-western states, was taken through the lens of a UK-based photographer and attempts to show the viewer just a small selection of the scenes and variety that the Union Pacific has to offer.
