Description:

Dining and Beverage Service Cars of the Santa Fe by John B. McCall For over 90 years the names of the Santa Fe Railway and Fred Harvey were synonymous passenger train and hospitality of the finest quality. After the partnership adopted the persona of the of the Native American cultures of the Southwest, their services were carried on with a style that became legendary. In this Volume Number 3 in the Santa Fe Railway Passenger Car Reference Series, noted Santa Fe authority John B. McCall not only details the dining and beverage service cars once owned by Santa Fe, but also explores that unique partnership between Santa Fe and Fred Harvey, first begun in 1876 with a Harvey Lunchroom, expanded to Harvey resort hotels after the turn of the 20th century, thence to luxury transcontinental train service culminating in the lightweight extra-fare Super Chief of 1937. Richly illustrated with hundreds of photographs and period menus and ephemera, many in color, Dining and Beverage Service Cars of she Santa Fe - Featuring Service by Fred Harvey - seeks to distill within the covers of one Volume the very essence of what made Santa Fe a great railroad.
