Like lightning flashing across the desert sky, the Chief streaks by, resplendent in its warbonnet livery. This splendid illustrated history of the Santa Fe Railroads flagship passenger trains carries readers back to an era of luxury travel on Americas rails -- when movie stars and moguls booked their places on the Chief for the 40-hour trip from Chicago to Los Angeles -- faster even than Amtraks Southwest Chief today. The story of Americas most celebrated passenger train, the nations first diesel-poweed streamliner -- from its first run in 1936 to its takeover by Amtrak in 1971 -- also includes cocverage of the Santa Fes other Chiefs, including the Texas and San Francisco.
