These posters advertise Santa Fe demonstration trains traveling in Kansas in 1930 and 1931. The purpose of the 1930 train (8 cars) was to present a plan for higher profits on wheat farms. Tom L. Bair, the State's champion wheat grower, was part of the 1930 train. It's travel dates were July 21 through August 2, 1930. The 1931 train (9 cars) was designed to present a plan for more profits in the beef cattle industry. The 1931 train had special features for women and children and it was traveling throughout the state from August 24 through September 5, 1931. The towns where the train would stop each year are listed on the posters. The trains were operated jointly by the Santa Fe and the Kansas State Agricultural College. J. F. Jarrell, manager of Agricultural Development for Santa Fe, was the organizer of these trains. The posters make a point of emphasizing that the speakers will be on a flat car "equipped with electrically controlled voice amplifiers. Visitors remaining in their automobiles will be able to hear perfectly."
