Fascinating history of the Wichita Northwestern Railway which began life as the Anthony & Northern. The line ran from Hays, Kansas to Trousdale through Larned and Belpre, with an east/west line from Kinsley through Iuka to Pratt, connecting with the Rock Island and the Santa Fe. The book, based on years of research, covers the railroad's struggle to survive hauling wheat in the face of truck competition, drought and the Depression while providing a lifeline to many small communities.Chapters cover locomotives, depots, rolling stock, passenger rail motor cars, freight and passenger services, maintenance of way equipment and a related railroad, the Kansas & Oklahoma. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos. With locomotive rosters, equipment rosters, timetables, bibliography and map. 92 pages.
