Santa Fe Today

8 pamphlet set published by the Santa Fe Railway between 1945-50. A comprehensive overview of the railroad's operation in the mid 20th-century.

Expansion of the Santa Fe from a small Kansas enterprise into a vast transcontinental transportation system has brought about many changes in its operations. These articles explain the workings of this modern railroad plant with its shops, yards, offices and other physical properties which go to make up the Santa Fe today. These articles have been prepared by the public relations department with the co-operation of the various department heads and the editors of The Santa Fe Magazine.
