From the article in the Wichita Eagle (

Mr. Stagner was working on his 32nd book [emphasis added] about trains
when he suffered a heart attack at his Newton home Jan. 11. He died late
Friday at Via Christi Regional Medical Center-St. Francis Campus at the
age of 84.

"He was a very prolific author and very highly regarded," said Gale
Meek, who served with Mr. Stagner on the Great Plains Transportation
Museum's board of directors. "He researched things carefully. He didn't
write about things he didn't know about."

He will be missed.

How modest. "Several books."
A quick search on reveals 26. That probably is

NEWTON, Kan. - Lloyd Stagner, author of several books and eight
TRAINS features between 1972 and 1989, died late Friday following a
heart attack. He was 84.
Thanks for calling our attention to this, Tim. Lloyd was an old-school
gentleman whose knowledge was prodigious and who was always happy to
share what he knew. Santa Fe modelers and historians will miss him; I
know I will.
