Santa Fe in Transition: A Pictorial History


By Ira Silverman

This book documents the changes on the Santa Fe from the late 1960s to the mid-1970s, a period of significant change on the Santa Fe as it faced competition from the interstate highway system, jet travel, and changes in transportation tastes.  Santa Fe responded with intermodal service, the fastest freight train, more powerful locomotives, and new signal and telecommunications systems while maintaining its hallmark passenger service and creative marketing.  The pictures were taken by a career railroader proud to restore The Chief name to the public eye.

Softbound.  72 pages, 103 photos excluding front , back and table of contents, all photos color.
