Santa Fe Railway 2013
Santa Fe Railway Calendar
Chartered in 1863, the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railway's first trains rolled the next year, and the line reached Santa Fe, New Mexico, in 1880. By 1929, at its peak, the Santa Fe had over 13,000 miles of track. Santa Fe Railway captures images of steam and diesel from across this vast system, so famous it was memorialized in a song that won an Academy Award. Do you hear that whistle down the line?
