Santa Fe Locomotive Facilities Vol 2

West End Western Lines

By Robert D. Walz, Stephen Priest.

Color laminated hardcover, 8.25x11, 192 pages, color and b&w photos, plans. 2013.

"The late Russell Crump was the principal author and driving force behind this series that examines locomotive servicing facilities on all four of Santa Fe's traditional grand divisions. Author Bob Walz picks up where Russell left off in Volume Two, covering the west end of the Western Lines — Santa Fe’s largest and most complex — concentrating on the state of New Mexico (and a portion of Colorado and Texas). Volume 2 displays steam locomotive facilities that provided fuel, water, sand, and repair of these complex machines in both color and B&W photos and detailed illustrated plans. Diesel servicing, repair, fuel, and sanding facilities are also included. Lots of color photographs are used but b/w was necessary for the early days."
