DUST JACKET INTRODUCTION:
This book is destined to go down in the history of railroading as one of the most engaging, interesting and fact-filled volumes ever published. One editor said: "This is a collectors item the day it is published."
Not only does it cover all the departments, such as Operations, Power, roadbed and track, electronics, communications and policy, but it contains and conserves in lasting form, details of the great Chiefs which were the finest and the most luxurious trains ever produced . . . an essay in nostalgia.
The history making steam engines of the Santa Fe, which were prodigeous, are catalogued here, as well as lists and photographs of the magnificent fleet of Diesels, the largest in the world.
Here the "Number 1, railway of the world" (FORTUNE Magazine) comes to life in all its dynamic and mammoth structure, but little known features, such as pictures of all the Santa Fe presidents, are presented, together with the present executive staff.
J.M. McFadden, the railroad authority, has written: "The best railway book in years . . . remarkable!"
