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."
