The Santa Fe Railway and the Lost Locomotives of Topeka by James J Reisdorff and Lloyd E Stagner.  On July 13, 1951 two spans of the large SF Railway bridge at Topeka, KS collapsed into the Kaw River at the height of a flood. Sinking into the rushing waters were 3 of the 10 old SF steam locomotives, which had been placed on the bridge in as effort to stabilize it. The story of the “lost locomotives of Topeka” has greatly intrigued railroad enthusiasts and history detectives alike. This interesting and fun book, filled with rare photographs, examines in detail the mystery and lore surrounding this dramatic incident from the Great Kansas Flood of ’51. Softbound. 56 pages.
