Perhaps the most well-known railroad in transportation history, the Atchison, Topeka a Santa Fe Railway grew from humble beginnings in 1868 to a high-flying icon of the American West known more simply as a€œthe Santa Fe.a€ In 1995, it merged with Burlington Northern and today its legacy survives as part of BNSF Railway. Noted railroad author Steve Glischinski takes railfans on a tour of the Santa Fea€™s entire history, throughout the American Midwest and Southwest. Santa Fe Railway looks into all aspects of the legendary railroada€™s passenger and freight operations, from the famous 1905 record-breaking L.A.-to-Chicago high-speed run of a€œDeath Valley Scottya€ to the inauguration and career of the world-class Super Chief, and from the pioneering freight trains of the nineteenth century to modern-era intermodal runs linking Chicago and California in less than 48 hours. The book also features notable Santa Fe locomotives, from diminutive 4-4-0 steam models to the Super Fleet diesel-electric series of the 1990s and even the latest models run under the BNSF Railway banner.
