KANSAS CENTRAL NARROW GAUGE I.E. Quastler 104 pages softcover

The Kansas Central Railway was one of America's pioneer narrow gauge (three feet) railroads, started in 1871 and extending westward from the Missouri River at Leavenworth, Kan. This "slim princess" of the prairies operated as both an independent carrier and, ultimately, as a branch line of the Union Pacific Railroad. Kansas Central Narrow Gauge skillfully recounts the story of the bold dreams and economic folly which brought slim gauge to the plains of northeast Kansas. Kilo1

KANSAS CITY SOUTHERN IN THE DERAMUS ERA Louis Marre and Gregory Sommers 232 pages hardcover

Kansas City Southern has always been an unusual property and this book examines some of the qualities that have made it so. The focus is on the period during which its affairs were managed by three generations of the same family, the Deramus era. This books is not a study of management or of financial affairs, but rather of motive power and train operations. The heart of this book is the diesel age, but the age of steam that preceded it is covered too. Among its many achievements, KCS introduced the diesel streamliner to its service territory, and the premier Southern Bell gets pilot-to-markers coverage. Included is a full steam and diesel locmotive roster to support the story of KCS's motive power and the trains it pulled-and occasionally pushed- in the Deramus Eras. Kilo1
