Santa Fe Railway 2022 Calendar


Chartered just before the Civil War, during the next three decades the tracks of the Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe Railway reached from Chicago to Los Angeles. Santa Fe’s trains provided the country’s most appealing passenger service and for shippers, the most innovative intermodal freight service in America. Santa Fe features classic steam and diesel locomotives working on the ATSF.
