This is another well-researched title by Bob Walz. Just like the New Mexico Division title, this one includes tables of data such as what trains operated over periods of time, division maps over time, a schematic of Argentine Yard and others and steam locomotive assignments.
The next volume in Bob Walz's divisional history series, this volume covers the history of Santa Fe’s Eastern Division as well as the Kansas City Terminal Division and the Southern Kansas Division from 1869 to 1995. The Eastern Division, because of its heavy traffic, attracted many well-known photographers such as Otto Perry, Preston George, Bill Gibson, Art Gibson, Ray Hilner, Wes Kranbeck, Lee Berglund, Imre Quastler, Lynn Aldrich and Lance Garrels, all of whom provided photographs for the book. 256 pages., 256 photographs, tables of data and appendices.
