On 9/15/18, JoAnna and I attended the NM Railroad History Fair in Santa Fe, NM. It was hosted in the railyard, and included tours of the NM Railrunner (which I ride almost every day), an art show of railroad related art, and a model train show.
Around the railyard, we saw Santa Fe 93, which is used for special events as part of the Santa Fe Southern line. This line can be leased for parties, weddings, etc. There are two closed cars, one open car, and one caboose that ride along for this line.
Also in the yard was a Herzog truck fitted for rail use:
…and a restored handtruck!
The Santa Fe Depot sat in the distance.
One of the displays showed the railyard, as drawn in 2003. I accidentally sized this image too small, but you get the idea.
…as w ell as some drawings from 1904.
Another display had a locomotive piston, which I thought was neat. I wish they’d said more about where it came from.
Overall, it was a good event, and I look forward to attending next year’s, perhaps to take some better photos.
Thank you for reading my post.
