Quarter Century on CD
By Fred W. Frailey
Up to the writing of this book in 1974, despite the large amount of published material about passenger trains, little had been written about the entire passenger service of any major railroad. Frailey brought it all together for theSanta Fe in the eventful quarter century between the end of WW II and the coming of Amtrak. During these 25 years, the heavyweight name trains of the past moved into oblivion, the fleet of Chiefs grew in size and number–and then, too, faded away. This book presents it all, consists, equipment assignments, extra sections, the mail and express business and interactions among trains. The SFRH&MS has republished this long out of print classic on CD.
