Route Of The Cheifs – Sante Fe In The Streamline Era

By Greg Stout

How does one describe the Santa Fe within the era of the streamliner? The easiest way to go? The most well liked carrier to California? The railroad with the most productive reputation or public relations? Should you ask most of the people what used to be the Super Chief, chances are high that they’ll guess a passenger train and even perhaps the name Santa Fe Railway. The Santa Fe is still famous these days and and it kind of feels more remembered than its competitors of the past. That is the third title by the creator Greg Stout for White River Productions following Route of the Eagles (1995) and Route of the Rockets (1997) at the famous trains and railroads of the steamlined era.

This long-anticipated volume is in spite of everything here! Route of the Chiefs is the ultimate photographic history of how the Santa Fe rose to being one of the crucial foremost passenger carriers in The united states’s streamliner era. From the premiere Super Chief to the extensive network of secondary trains, this new 256-page volume is the next best thing to being on board.

If ever a railroad used to be a friend to the passenger, Santa Fe used to be it. From the 1892 version of the California Limited to the Santa Fe De-Luxe, to the 1926 Chief, to the 1937 Super Chief, no other railroad offered greater luxury to its first-class clientele. Later, with the inauguration of the 1938 El Capitan, the company brought fast, brand new accommodations to coach travelers as well. Add to that the rest Chiefs and streamliners, including the San Francisco Chief, Texas Chief, the Chief itself, plus the Grand Canyon, Chicagoan, Kansas Cityan, San Diegan, Golden Gates, and a host of supporting cast players like The Cavern, El Pasoan, Tulsan and others, and it’s hard to conceive of any railroad that did it better, or while well.
