The Santa Fe Railway is well remembered for its passenger trains. Indeed, articles on these  trains and their operations written by many different authors with contributions by even more individuals, have appeared many times for over nearly a half century in the publications of the Santa Fe Railway Historical & Modeling Society and its predecessors under the names of the High Iron, Santa Fe Modeler, The Santa Fe Route, and The Warbonnet. Compilers Michael W. Flick, an acknowledged expert on Santa Fe passenger trains, and John R. Signor, long time editor of The Warbonnet, have brought to this compendium not only articles of their own, but have gathered together dozens published as far back as the early 1970s. Many required updating. Corrections were made as needed. Color images were added if available, some original articles were produced when only black and white was suitable for publishing, though some of the source images had actually been in color. For some articles, additional material was added, and some original material was
created to fill some gaps for specific trains and operations for which nothing had been written prior to this compendium.

While this compendium is by no means a complete, or comprehensive review of all Santa Fe passenger trains, it does place within one cover the board scope of Santa Fe passenger train articles published by the SFRH&MS and predecessors, in a convenient and accessible single volume.

Santa Fe Passenger Train Compendium
This hard bound book is a collection of articles about Santa Fe passenger trains. The earliest train was the Red train, which I’d never heard of, but glad I have now. Then the de Luxe to the flagship California Limited, often running in multiple sections, to the Chief, Super Chief and winding up with the fleet of Chiefs. John Signor ensures high quality articles, logically, chronologically explained with a judicious amount of photos. This is very comprehensive and well worth the amount. Steve Mason
