Santa Fe Steam Survivors

By Lloyd E. Stagner and Bob Yarger.

Softcover, 48 pages, 8.5x11, 62 photos and illustrations.

"At the end of the steam age, Santa Fe was among the foremost of American railroads that responded generously to requests for steam locomotives to be placed on display in city parks and museums. Renowned steam locomotive historian Lloyd E. Stagner documents the service history and current locations of all 51 AT&SF steam locomotives on display or held for future exhibition. Noted railroad preservation writer Bob Yarger then comments on what action can and must be taken in order to assure the future survival of these treasured artifacts of America's rail heritage. Filled with 62 photos and illustrations, this book is a call to action for railroad enthusiasts and history preservationists everywhere.
