This little title has quite a bit of data in it. It shows how departments in a division were organized, shows color maps of divisions over time until the final consolidation of divisions into regions. Branch lines assigned to each division are also included. Pictures of each division office (often a depot with an upper floor) and huge grand division office buildings (high-rise) are shown.
One of the most confusing aspects of Santa Fe Railway history has been what division a particular location or line belonged to at any point in time. At various times La Junta, Colorado, belonged to the Western, Arkansas River, Colorado, Panhandle, or Kansas Division as well as the Eastern Region.
This monograph tells the story of the changes in the Santa Fe's organization throughout its history. It looks at the Santa Fe's organization by giving a snapshot of what was in existence at particular points in time and discusses the changes in between. For each snapshot there is a John Signor-drawn map in color visually showing the Santa Fe's organization at that time.
