For 90 years and over 800 miles, the highway and railroad have been constant companions through California, Arizona and New Mexico. This hardcover book is a visual road trip across these iconic routes. Each has experienced rise, fall and rebirth. Route 66 has seen a renaissance among travelers seeking the mythic American road trip, far from soulless Interstates. The former Santa Fe (now BNSF Railway) is one of America’s busiest railroads — up to 100 trains a day pace the highway through deserts, forests, mountain passes, cities, and dusty towns.

Published by the Los Angeles Railroad Heritage FoundationRoute 66 Railway takes you over Cajon Pass and the Mojave Desert, across the Arizona Divide, and past New Mexico’s red mesas to Albuquerque and to the Midwest. Enjoy nearly 300 images of modern and classic trains, vintage motels, neon diners, quirky tourist shops, and spectacular scenery.
