About this title


From the beginning of construction in 1881, through the end of pioneer days and well into the twentieth century, this railroad was vital to the growth of towns such as Winslow, Flagstaff, and Kingman, and was also an important factor in the development of Arizona and the West. A rich railroad history is presented in this book, from early construction days and the problems of operation through an arid and difficult territory, to steam and, later, diesel locomotives and their trains of various eras. Illustrated with a superb collection of rare and historic photographs, this is an outstanding addition to the Arizona series.


For some years now, David Myrick has been chronicling the railroads of California, Nevada and Arizona. This volume covers the Santa Fe main line across Arizona into the 1990s. Myrick is characteristically thorough...The book is well illustrated with photos...and maps. Santa Fe fans--and they are legion--will want this book. -- George H. Drury, in Trains magazine, December 1998

Myricks account is monumentally complete, thoroughly researched and very well illustrated. This is a handsome, well-designed book with first-rate photos, a welcome addition to the library of anyone interested in western railroads. -- Richard Hendrickson, in Railroad Model Craftsman magazine, April, 1999

Skillful writing makes this book very engaging and readable throughout. Photos and graphics chosen for the book are excellent, it is very elegantly laid out, and the amount of research is simply astounding! A very nice book. -- Publishers Marketing Association, May 1999
