Santa Fe Steam

I’ve always liked this image of a Santa Fe steam powered passenger train roaring down the high iron.  Most of the consist appears to be mail and express (common, especially in the later days of passenger service).  This slide was given to me by Andy Sperandeo many years ago (probably the early ’70s).  I don’t know if Andy was the photographer, or when and where the shot was taken.  But it’s always been one of my favorite pictures, so I thought I’d share it here.

  1. Thanks Jack,
    I followed Andy for many yrs. at Model Railroader. So sorry to read of his passing.
    Used to get Model Railroader, Model Railroad Craftman and Model Railroad News. But for each a year money wise can add up! Would much rather save money for more train stuff,,,,lol,,,
