From Michael C. Kelly on Anything Frisco, SLSF St Louis San Francisco Railroad Facebook group: "I am honored to be the publisher of Don Wirth’s first book: Frisco Steam Salute I am beyond thrilled to announce the next book I am publishing: “Frisco Steam Salute”! This book is written by renown Frisco steam authority Don Wirth, and features a classic black & white study of the steam power employed by the St Louis - San Francisco Railway in the 1930s & 40s. The book will be hardcover 8x11 in landscape format, predominantly black & white with some colorized shots as well as coverage of Don’s personal favorite 4-8-2, #1522. The photos are from Don’s private collection of negatives from dear friend Joe Collias, as well as William K Barham, Lucius Beene, Ivan Oaks, R.S. Plummer and others. The study will be in locomotive numerical order, with Don’s knowledge of each class of locomotives and train operations, and will end with a tribute to 1522. This is a book not to be missed by steam fans, has a target release date of April-May 2021. Cover price will be $39.95, but will be available beginning 90-days out from delivery for $35.
