AT&SF Freight at a Water Stop

I thought we’d head west again for a spell. It’s March of 1943, and Jack Delano is traveling about the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway. He captured this image of a westbound freight that had stopped to take on water at Melrose, New Mexico.

I don’t think he could have picked a nicer day to pursue his photography!
