NM AUTHOR TALKS SANTA FE RAILROAD 3:00 PM SUNDAY, JANUARY 21, AT PAGE ONE

New Mexico author Robert Strein, railroad enthusiast, will be at Page One Books 3:00 pm Sunday, January 21, to talk about and sign his revised non-fiction effort, "Santa Fe: The Chief Way" - which he co-wrote with John Vaughan and C. Fenton Richards.

The book is described as such: "A fresh and nostalgic look at the streamliners of the Santa Fe railroad from the late thirties to the early seventies. Historic photographs, promotional posters, and art capture the charm of traveling by rail throughout the Southwest on classics such as the Super Chief, the Chief, El Capitan, and the San Francisco Chief. The abundant pictures of the cars and amenities remind us how wonderful it was to travel by train. The extensive coverage of the original advertising materials used to lure travelers west through Indian Country in the Southwest is a unique feature to this charming book. These include train brochures, postcards, and magazine advertisements―all of which show the style and luxury afforded to the traveler on these famous streamliners. Additional chapters devoted to the art collection of the Santa Fe railroad and the depots and Harvey House hotels that are still standing in New Mexico add to the rich history and nostalgia of train travel in the Southwest."

Page One Books is located at 5850 Eubank Blvd NE, Suite B-41, in Albuquerque's Mountain Run Shopping Center (southeast corner of Eubank and Juan Tabo). The Strein event is free and open to the public. For more information, please call 294-2026 or visit www.page1book.com.
