Everyone knows that Streamliners are known not for the exterior, but also for their elegant interior! A bit disappointed on the text of this book. Little reference as far as the interior of the coaches. There is only a brief description of the diesel engines of these Santa Fe Streamliners. Nothing much about the E-units or even the First Super Chiefs. If you really like to know more about these Santa Fe Streamliners, I would suggest the book Streamliners: The Pre-war years and Streamliners: Post-war years. Those book has more information than this book. The photo from this book was COPIED from the book Santa Fe Streamliners: The Chiefs and thier Tribesmen which in my opinion is a little better book but still lacks information as far the interior of these great Streamliners. The only useful I found useful is the schedule. Nothing more.
I have just purchased my copy from Amazon. This is a wonderful book with more than adequate detail of all aspects of Santa Fe's fabulous and world famous era of streamlined train travel. Great photographs including colour with a shot of the first boxcab in its modified streamliner phase. Thank you Mr Dorin, a great buy at the price. Grab one before they all go!
