  • The Doodlebugs A word and picture history of over six decades of self-propelled passenger car service on America's most colorful major railroad (McCall)

For nearly six decades they travelled the rails of the Santa Fe, delivering people, milk, mail, express packages, chickens, newspapers, and gossip. Officially, they were known as gas electric motor passenger cars but they were lovingly called "doodlebugs." The Santa Fe owned quite a number over the years, both very small (inspection cars) and large, both new and second hand, both purpose built and converted from passenger cars. This book details how the doodlebugs developed, the mechanics and cosmetics involved, and their use over the decades. Profusely illustrated with over 300 black and white as well as colour photos and drawings. With motor car and trailer car rosters, maps, timetables, paint schemes, schematics, passenger statistics, and assignments.1997 First Printing Santa Fe Historical & Modeling Society. Hardcover with protected dw. Good condition, dw has small losses, creasing and rubbing. 256pp. 8V-MQHE-JFLH
