I had to watch your Santa Fe tape four times this weekend!!! This tape will have its special place in my library! Pat yourself on the back for sharing this rare footage.
— Al Willcoxen

The whole trip from Dearborn Station, Chicago to Union Terminal, Los Angeles, with particular attention to the Great Bridges across the Mississippi and Missouri and the Great Passes: Raton, Glorieta and Cajon. Above Raton the Sangre de Cristo peaks sparkle in the breathtaking white of early winter against a diamond blue New Mexico sky. The Super Chief squeezes onto the sinuous single track hung in the slot canyon above Apache Creek as it pushes toward Glorieta Pass ( as high and more spectacular than Raton, but rarely photographed). Feel the suction of air as the train roars past on the prairie. See inside the luxury consist, and glimpse the rest of the Santa Fe's streamlined fleet in action, including the San Francisco Chief, The Texas Chief, The Grand Canyon, The El Capitan, and Alco PAs leading The San Diegan along the Pacific surf.
