Sata Fe history discovered

Schuyler Larrabee

(MON) Workers demolishing a building across from Santa Fe Southern tracks in Santa Fe, NM discovered
that its first floor had been made from 4 Santa Fe reefer cars built in the early 1900s. A Santa Fe
Southern spokesman said that the 4 cars still bore Santa Fe markings of that time and that 2 of the
4 cars would be preserved. The Santa Fe Southern now operates the former Santa Fe branch between
Lamy, NM and Santa Fe. Said SFS President Carol Raymond, "We have spent 14 years preserving rail
service in Santa Fe.It was like discovering a treasure." (ffd: Santa Fe New Mexican, Trains)
