"The Desert Southwest is home to many mythic roads-the Santa Fe Trail, the legendary U.S. Route 66, and the lines of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway. Upon the latter, the signature trains-the trains that inspired their own following-were the Santa Fe Chief and Super Chief." "Not only did these provide the fastest ride (57 hours and 40 hours, respectively) from Chicago and Los Angeles, but both became known for their top-notch service and famous "warbonnet" livery. With world-famous Fred Harvey food, an opulent Turquoise Room, and Pleasure Domes, the Super Chief became the "train of the stars."" "In Santa Fe Chiefs, avid rail fan and author Bill Yenne chronicles the history of these great passenger trains from 1926 until their 1971 Amtrak takeover and beyond. Their counterparts-the Texas Chief, San Francisco Chief, and Southwest Chief-are also featured, as well as a wealth of period advertisements, historic and modern photographs, dining menus and recipes, and other "Chief" memorabilia.
