Santa Fe – Eisenhower Passenger Special

February 9, 2010

Santa Fe Passenger Special being turned at Solomon, KS on Oct. 14, 1990

The City of Abilene, Kansas commemorated the Centennial of Dwight Eisenhower’s birth in October of 1990. The BN, UP and Santa Fe operated special trains from Kansas City to Abilene to transport invited guests.

We’re looking at Santa Fe’s handsome Budd-built business car 50,  “Santa Fe” as it passes by en route to Solomon, Kansas where the train will be wyed for its return to Kansas City.

Only two business cars were built by Budd, this one for the Santa Fe and one for the Burlington.
