THE SANTA FE IN TRANSITION/Silverman

Default Title: $30.00 USD

 

This book documents the changes in Santa Fe from the late 1960s to the mid-1970s 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 who was proud to restore The Chief name to the public eye.
