The late Larry Brasher published a 2006 book on Santa Fe locomotive development that traced ATSF specifications for steam power from the 1880’s until the 1930’s.  His last work continues this treatise starting from the 1934 ‘Supreme Steam’ era through dieselization in 1959.

Santa Fe Diesel Locomotive Development, published by the Railroad Artifact Preservation Society, examines Santa Fe’s role in diesel locomotive development and technology, covering GM EMD F and GP’s, Fairbanks-Morse switchers, and units from Baldwin and Alco; each of which had to be adapted to the specifications and demands unique to the Santa Fe.
