Notes:

This is the third title by the author Greg Stout for White River Productions following Route of the Eagles (1995) and Route of the Rockets (1997) on the famous trains and railroads of the streamlined era. Route of the Chiefs is the ultimate photographic history of how the Santa Fe rose to being one of the foremost passenger carriers in America's streamliner era. From the premiere Super Chief to the extensive network of secondary trains, this new 256-page volume is the next best thing to being on board.
