Title: General Map Showing the Western Pacific Railroad Company in California, Nevada and Utah
Place Published: San Francisco
Publisher:Chief Engineer's Office
Date Published: 1922
Description:

Blue line map. 50.5x110 cm (19¾x43¼"), folded.

Detailed map of the west, from the Oregon-California border in the north to Santa Cruz county in the south, and from the Pacific in the west to just beyond Moab in the east. The Western Pacific Railroad was founded in 1903 as an attempt to break the near-monopoly the Southern Pacific Railroad had on rail service into northern California. WP's Feather River Route directly competed with SP's portion of the Overland Route for rail traffic between Salt Lake City/Ogden, Utah, and Oakland, California, for nearly 80 years. In 1982, the Western Pacific was acquired by the Union Pacific Corporation and it was soon merged into their Union Pacific Railroad. The Western Pacific was one of the original operators of the California Zephyr. Indication on the map is that this we revised to 1922, but pencil notation on the back bears date 4/30/31. No copies listed in OCLC, though there is a similar, undated, map at the University of California Berkeley.
