Growing-up on the Santa Fe:  Riding the Chiefs and Business Cars

My father worked for the Santa Fe Railroad for 41 years in operations and as an executive. My life growing up was all about trains and riding the beautiful stainless steel Santa Fe streamliners. My favorite Santa Fe passenger train was not the Super Chief but a little passenger train called the Lubbock Streamliner that ran from Amarillo Texas to Lubbock, Texas, a trip just a little over a hundred fifty miles. The train consisted of a beautiful E-9 locomotive, baggage car, chair car and a Pullman sleeper with roomettes, berths, and double bedrooms. Click on the photo to read more.
