This is the itinerary for the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad farm demonstration train on dairy, swine, and poultry. The list includes descriptions of railroad cars and equipment, program for each stop, purebred sire exchange, and the division of costs between the Kansas Agricultural College of Manhattan, Riley County, and the Santa Fe Railroad. Demonstration trains such as this one represent an alliance between railroad companies, agricultural scientists, and manufacturers to promote settlement, improve farm management, and market commercial farm products. The railroad's Agricultural Development and Publicity Office managed the trains.
