AT&SF E6 15
Title:  AT&SF E6 15
Description:  AT&SF E6 15 at Albuquerque, New Mexico, circa 1942, photograph by Jack Delano, image from the Library of Congress ( LoC ). The description at the LoC was: Santa Fe R.R. streamliner, the 'Super Chief,' being serviced at the depot, Albuquerque, New Mexico. Servicing these diesel streamliners takes five minutes.

Number 15 was built in May 1941 ( c/n 1242 ), retired and traded to EMD in June 1968. Note it was equipped with a visor over the headlight, which I believe was installed to make the light less noticeable from the air, the fear being air raids from Japan during World War II. I count 11 men servicing the locomotives, although one man is carrying a grip bag, so maybe he is part of the locomotive crew. Also of interest ( to me ) is the man on the right stacking white bags on a baggage cart, and he is standing on something that is covered with a white fabric cloth.

Description:  Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe Railway F3 27L eastbound at La Junta, Colorado on August 17, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. I believe this is Train #24, The Grand Canyon. Number 27L (note a small letter L is painted on the middle yellow stripe above the buffer and below the nose door) was built as the lead unit of locomotive 27 in May 1948 (c/n 5407) on EMD Order E902A. It was rebuilt in February 1971 to CF7 2642, later becoming ECRX 2642. It is seen here waiting on a side track after the station switcher placed a Railway Post Office car on the head end of the train. An Alco RSD5 will couple this power and place it back at the head end, which will then continue on to Kansas City and ultimately Chicago.

Title:  AT&SF F3 31C
Description:  Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe Railway F3 31C at La Junta, Colorado on August 17, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Number 31C (note a small letter C is painted on the middle yellow stripe above the buffer and below the nose door) was built as the trailing cab of locomotive 31 in September 1948 (c/n 6616) on EMD Order E1014A. It was rebuilt August 30 1971 to CF7 2636, retired from the AT&SF June 26, 1987, sold to NRE, who sold it to the Washington Central, becoming WCRC 402 during July 1988. It is seen here as the trailing cab of an A-B-B-B-A locomotive backing to couple to eastbound Train #24, The Grand Canyon. An Alco RSD5 is at the other end (note the Alco smoke in the background), shoving these locomotives toward #24. A Railway Post Office car has been placed at the head end of the train for the continuation of the trip to Chicago. At Kansas City, this procedure will be repeated and another RPO will be added there. The AT&SF had the mail contract between Chicago and Los Angeles, but the RPO's were not needed west of La Junta.

Title:  AT&SF F3 31C
Description:  Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe Railway F3 31C at La Junta, Colorado on August 17, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Number 31C is being moved to its train and will be will be the trailing unit on Train #24, the eastbound Grand Canyon. If I remember the situation correctly, the locomotive set was being changed out, the road crew was not allowed to make the move on their own within the station yard limits, and the station switcher (RSD5 2134) was required to move the road engines. Previous to this the station switcher added a RPO car to the consist of #24, per the railroad's contract with the U. S. Postal Sevice. The RPO was not needed (paid for) west of La Junta.

Title:  AT&SF F7 46C
Description:  AT&SF F7 46C westbound at Joliet, Illinois on July 11, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Number 46C was built as the trailing cab of A-B-B-A locomotive 46 in October 1952 (c/n 17317) on EMD Order 6454. It was renumbered to 300C and leased to Amtrak in June 1971, returned to the AT&SF around October 1973. It was rebuilt to CF7 2543 in November 1973, later becoming INRD 2543. It is seen here leading the second section of Train #23, The Grand Canyon. Since it displays green flags, one would suppose that there is another section of #23 following.

My notes indicate that this is the second section of Train #23, The Grand Canyon. Since it displays green flags, one would suppose that there is another section of #23 following.

Number 54 was built in 1918 for the United States Railway Administration, sold to the AT&SF in 1920, numbered 31 and assigned to AT&SF President Ripley, renumbered to 54 in 1973 and assigned to the General Manager at Topeka. Also seen is RTA (later, Metra) Cab Car 804, built by Budd in 1973. The sign in the door of 804 reads 5:47, so we may assume that the time is a few minutes after that in the afternoon.

It was rebuilt in December 1952 to E8m 81L, rated at 2000 horsepower due to the re-use of some of the E1B components. It was traded to EMD during 1970 on an order of GP38's.

Title:  AT&SF E8m 81
Description:  AT&SF E8m 81L at La Junta, Colorado, August 17, 1965, photo by Chuck Zeiler. Look carefully and you will see the letter L painted in the yellow band just below the nose door. This is Train 201-28, the Denver Connection for The Chief, departing La Junta for Denver at 1:05 PM. I recorded on the slide that this train was named the Denver Streamliner, I don't know how accurate that is, and I cannot verify it. The eastbound Chief arrived at La Junta at 12:30 PM. If you arrived on the westbound Chief, you had about a 12 hour layover as the westbound arrived at La Junta at 12:30 AM. The southbound counterpart of this train was Number 27-190, departing Denver at 8:00 PM, arriving at La Junta at 11:30 PM, in time for the westbound Chief.

Description:  AT&SF Yard Slug 121 at Corwith Yard in Chicago, Illinois on an unknown day in May 1979, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Although the slug appears to be unnumbered, by tracing the mother (1310) back at atsfrr.net I was able to determine the number as 121, assigned to GP7 2246 which was later rebuilt and renumbered to 1310. Number 121 was built as NW2 2356 (c/n 918), renumbered to 2406 in August 1945, rebuilt to Slug 121 in July 1973 and assigned to 2246 at Corwith hump yard, sold to National Railway Equipment in September 1988.

Title:  AT&SF F7 261C
Description:  AT&SF F7 261C, west of Las Animas, Colorado on August 17, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Built in August 1951 as 261C (c/n 13732), the trailing cab of A-B-B-A locomotive 261 built on EMD Order 3095A (EMD Order 3095B was for the B-units), it was rebuilt in August 1977 to CF7 2446, later BMRG 601, later still RBMN 1502. Although it has the appearance of an F3, I presume it has lost its Farr Aire grills somewhere along the way. All sources I've found list it as an F7. Odd photo angle to be sure, I shot this from a car traveling in the opposite direction. I believe this train is passing over an Arroyo, a dry creek bed that fills with water during the rainy season in desert areas. I only know that word because the Western Pacific had a Budd stainless steel 10-6 sleeper named SILVER ARROYO, numbered 861, part of the WP's contribution to the California Zephyr, and I looked that word up in the dictionary.

AT&SF F7 306
Title:  AT&SF F7 306
Description:  AT&SF F7 306 westbound on the CB&Q at Naperville, Illinois on August 10, 1965, photo by Chuck Zeiler. Sorry about the motion blur, I was done shooting photos for the day and was walking home on the street next to the tracks when I heard a horn unlike any on CB&Q locomotives, so I ran over the the tracks and this is what I got. Apparently, there was a problem on the AT&SF somewhere between Chicago and Galesburg, which is likely where this train joined home rails again. Trains of the AT&SF. CRI&P, C&NW and CMStP&P would use the CB&Q tracks to get around a problem on their own rails. And the CB&Q would use a neighbor's rails if there was a problem on its own rails. This locomotive is the second 306, the first 306 (c/n 9607), was renumbered in November 1952 to 325L, later becoming CF7 2419. Second 306 was built in December 1952 (c/n 17434) on EMD Order 6365A, leased to Amtrak between 1971 and 1973, renumbered to 333L and put into freight service, rebuilt in August 1977 to CF7 2443.

AT&SF Business Car 407
Title:  AT&SF Business Car 407
Description:  AT&SF Business Car 407 at La Junta, Colorado on August 17, 1965, photo by Chuck Zeiler. The Santa Fe had 18 short (approximately 60 foot exterior length) four-wheel truck business cars built by Pullman between 1924-1929 in the 400-409 and 422-229 number series. All were assigned to Division Superintendents. This particular car was built in December 1926, Pullman Lot 4977, and was assigned for some time to the Rio Grande Division. All were originally painted standard green with black roofs but in later years their roofs were painted aluminum to reflect the heat. At the rear of the car was an observation platform 3'6" in depth, inside was the observation room which was 10' long with two large windows on each side and two windows plus a door to the observation platform. Behind the observation room was Stateroom B, a 6'4" cubical to sleep two. Behind it was a toilet and shower in 3'6", followed by State Room A, which was a spacious 7'2". In normal inspection use, Stateroom A would be for the Division Superintendent while Stateroom B was for his secretary. For obvious reason, male secretaries were the norm for Division Superintendents. The next room was the Dining room, 12' in length, with seating at the table for six. A sideboard of Mexican Mahogany kept the silverware and china. A desk in the corner served the secretary, and a sofa on one wall could fold to reveal an upper birth. Finally, a 4'4" bedroom served the porter who was also the cook in the 8' kitchen next to the vestibule. As built they had two vestibule doors. Very early in their lives the door on the kitchen side was closed up and a storage closet created on that side of the vestibule. As cars were modernized electric generation was added where the vestibule storage was located and a large flare vent was added to the roof. The other vestibule door was also closed in on some cars to create a new storage room and and a new side door created over the center of the rear truck resulting in the loss of one vestibule side window. During 1968 the Superintendents' business cars were discontinued and were replaced by high-rail automobiles. One record indicates that car 407 was at the Midland Railroad, Baldwin City, Kansas, but donated to the Railroad Heritage Inc., for display at the Great Overland Station in Topeka, Kansas.

AT&SF H12-44TS 541
Title:  AT&SF H12-44TS 541
Description:  AT&SF H12-44TS 541 at Corwith Yard Shops in Chicago, Illinois on April 11, 1965, photo by Chuck Zeiler. I stuck my head inside the shops and snapped this photo before getting caught. By process of elimination, I determined this MIGHT be 541. Obviously it is being repainted, and looking at repaint dates at http://www.atsfrr.net/resources/CrossetGene/index.htm, number 541 fits the bill (rpnt to BYT2 paint bef 20May65). Number 541 was built by F-M in Beloit, Wisconsin during May 1956 (c/n 12L1021), retired June 1, 1972. It was one of only three such models built, AT&SF road numbers 541-543. Quoting from the book, Fairbanks-Morse Locomotives In Color, by Jim Boyd: "Shuffling passenger consists between Chicago's Dearborn Station and its 21st Street Coach Yard was a problem for the Santa Fe because the trains had to be supplied with steam heat during the moves. To solve the problem, in May 1956 Santa Fe had F-M build three unique boiler-equipped switchers (541-543). These H12-44TS units were essentially H12-44's placed on elongated underframes with the steam generator placed in a short hood behind the cab. Riding on switcher trucks, in spite of appearances, these units were not road switchers." One example, 543, exists today, I believe, at the Illinois Railway Museum, having previously been in the collection of the California State Railroad Museum..

AT&SF D935

Description:  AT&SF Drovers Caboose D935 at Lakeview, Arkansas on November 5, 1989, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. This car was a fishing cabin located on the White River. It departed for places unknown a few years later. I could find no information about this particular car, however one source indicates that similar cars were built as Dovers cars to transport cowboys riding with stock shipments. Later some cars were converted to baggage/coach configuration and used as branch line waycars ( caboose ) and renumbered into the 2000 number series.
