Locomotive Facilities - Volume 2 - West End Western Lines-

Locomotive Facilities - Volume 2 - West End Western Lines-

The late Russell Crump was the principal author and driving force behind this series that examines locomotive servicing facilities on all four of Santa Fe's traditional grand divisions. Author Bob Walz picks up where Russell left off in Volume Two, covering the west end of the Western Lines — Santa Fe’s largest and most complex — concentrating on the state of New Mexico (and a portion of Colorado and Texas). Volume 2 displays steam locomotive facilities that provided fuel, water, sand, and repair of these complex machines in both color and B&W photos and detailed illustrated plans. Diesel servicing, repair, fuel, and sanding facilities are also included. Lots of color photographs are used but b/w was necessary for the early days! Coupled with the quality, layout and editing you expect from Paired Rail, it is sure to sell out quickly-reserve yours NOW! More volumes to follow!

Santa Fe Depots Volume 1- Engineering Series Volume 7

Santa Fe Depots Volume 1- Engineering Series Volume 7

Volume 7 Paired Rail’s Engineering series looks at depots a bit differently than previous works. Author Robert D. Walz shows Santa Fe depots as examples of architectural form and function, depicting the wide variety of Santa Fe depots from the very large to the very small, from the unique to the standard. Volume One examines the larger depots as well as smaller depots constructed primarily of brick, concrete, and stucco. Most photos and plans in this volume are from the R. L. Crump/Priest Library collection. The photos, taken mostly in the 1920s and 1930s, show the depots at the peak of Santa Fe passenger service.

Santa Fe Depots Volume 2 - Engineering Series Volume 8

Santa Fe Depots Volume 2 - Engineering Series Volume 8

Volume 8 in Paired Rail’s Engineering series continues the examination of Santa Fe depot’s form and function by examining the railroad’s standard wood-frame depots that developed from the earliest structures. Depots 2 also examines the many non-standard wood-frame depots that mostly came to Santa Fe through the acquisition of other lines, as well as the post-World War II modern depots. Like Volume 1, most photos and plans in this volume are from the R. L. Crump/Priest Library collection. The photos, taken mostly in the 1920s and 1930s, show the depots at the peak of Santa Fe passenger service.

Santa Fe Freight Houses Book - Engineering Series Volume 3

Santa Fe Freight Houses Book - Engineering Series Volume 3

This 80-page, B&W, soft cover book is the third in a series featuring drawings, images, and reference material from the R.L. Crump Library. Noted author Robert D. Walz provides a broad survey of freight houses throughout the Santa Fe system. Limited run. Freight houses were key to the movement of less than car load freight (LCL). LCL is defined as “freight in one car from more than one shipper or destined to more than one receiver." LCL shipments were not as important or as expensive to the shipper as express shipments that moved via the Railway Express Agency in passenger trains. They were, however, more expensive per hundredweight than carload shipments. This expense was due to the extra handling required of railroad employees. This book will show some of the Santa Fe’s freight houses using photos, drawings, and maps primarily from archives in the Crump Library. Information about the movement of LCL freight comes from Santa Fe System Circular 385, Merchandise Schedules and L.C.L. Freight Service revised to 1 November 1946.

Santa Fe Division Point Yards Book - Engineering Series Volume 2

Santa Fe Division Point Yards Book - Engineering Series Volume 2

This second volume in Paired Rail’s engineering series looks at the yards that were located at the boundaries of operating divisions. This 80 page, B&W, softcover book highlights Division Point Yards. We will look at the division point yards of each grand division in turn. This book is built around maps of Santa Fe’s division point yards, and we will show each yard at a specific point in time and describe changes through photos and text.
The greater reliance on long distance intermodal and unit trains also contributed to the downgrading and elimination of division point yards. Thus, by the time of its merger with the Burlington Northern, the Santa Fe had torn up some former division point yards, greatly reduced classification at others and eliminated switch tricks in favor of local train crews.

Santa Fe Coaling Facilities Book - Engineering Series Volume 1

Santa Fe Coaling Facilities Book - Engineering Series Volume 1

This 64 page, B&W, softcover book highlights the wide variety of facilities, both large and small, from the suppliers used by the Santa Fe. We have arbitrarily divided the facilities into four types: very large terminal facilities, division and crew change points, mainline intermediate facilities, and branch line facilities. Unless otherwise noted, all the illustrations are from the Russell L. Crump Memorial Library. Most of the dozens of coaling towers that once stood along the Santa Fe right of way were demolished within a few years of the end of coal-fired steam operations in their respective areas. For one reason or another though, a scattered handful of concrete towers survived, unused and derelict, for several decades more. The chutes at Skedee, Oklahoma, and Chanute, Kansas lasted into the 1980s before being leveled, and three others at Cushing, Oklahoma, Great Bend, Kansas, and Marceline, Missouri still exist today.
