1940s Santa Fe PCs

I know I have been slow to post. But I have been very busy. And being busy is a good thing. So here we go... ENJOY!

These 2 postcards were presented by the Santa Fe Railway, exclusively to Military Service Personnel in the 1940s.

The Santa Fe System embraces more than 13,100 miles of track, stretching from the Great Lakes, west to the Pacific Coast, and south to the Gulf of Mexico and the Mexican border.

It is the only railroad under one management between Chicago and California, and operates the only double track line between Chicago and Los Angeles.

That first one reminds me of the photo that I posted (remember, the one in Oakland?). Only in that one, the Santa Fe logo was much smaller!

Major, the pic you posted from Oakland was the California Zephyr, run by the Western Pacific Railroad. But very similar EMD locomotives.

Thank you for your comment Peter. It was the day of truly great trains.
