THE CHIEF WAY
PUBLICATION DATE NOT ANNOUNCED, BUT EXPECTED THE SECOND HALF OF 2012. THE CHIEF WAY features Santa Fe passenger trains during the streamliner era. Not only is the Chief fleet itself spotlighted in this handsome new hardcover book by Greg Stout, but so are other members of the family of passenger trains operated by the late, great Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe. Yes, you'll read all about the Chief and the Super Chief, but through brilliant photos and descriptive text you'll also learn about the Texas Chief, San Francisco Chief, and the obscure and unremarked Kansas City Chief. Historical information and photos abound on El Capitan, the Grand Canyon (both northern and southern sections), San Diegans, Kansas Cityan, Chicagoan, Tulsan, Oil Flyer, Angelo, the Golden Gates, and the California Special. Coverage begins with Santa Fe's first streamliner, the Super Chief, and goes into the early Amtrak era when Santa Fe ordered the "Chief" name stricken from timetables. List price $79.95, hardcover, color and b&w photos. SKU: CWAY. Posted 1-28-11.
