Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad. Isn't that just a marvellous name? I wish I could hear it pronounced with a lazy southern drawl. The name conjures up so many early television memories. Sadly the company is no more and the railway mainline never made it to Sante Fe in New Mexico. The company's history spanned from 1859 to 1996 when it was absorbed my another company.
Anything blue on the map was part of the company's network.
There was even a song, and having heard it, I now remember it. Mancini is not a favourite of mine but this is the only music that had seemed to have some appropriate footage.
