Santa Fe on the Great Plains


By Roger Ziegenhorn and Robert D. Walz.

Lee Berglund was a prolific photographer from Larned, Kansas, who documented the Santa Fe on the Great Plains encompassing Kansas, eastern Colorado – as far west as Trinidad and Denver – western Oklahoma, and northwest Texas as far south as Slaton. We see, through Lee’s lens, the history of the Santa Fe’s last 30 years in this territory at the heart of the Santa Fe. During Lee’s active years – 1964 to 1995 – the railroad experienced great changes.  The book allows the reader to see all these changes, beginning with Lee’s home turf, the Great Bend District, followed by a look at Santa Fe branch line railroading, Great Plains style. And in the final four chapters, the focus is primarily on Santa Fe’s mainlines on the Great Plains.  152 pages, 276 photos in color, full color map, timetable reproductions. Perfect bound.
