Burlington Route and Santa Fe
Posted by magnum3 on Tuesday, November 8, 2022 1:55 PM

Hello all,

so this goes out to all the train historians. As I'm researching and trying to learn prior to building my layout. I have a Santa Fe Northern and looking to get a CB&Q hudson. If I want to try and build something semi historical. Would there have been a place where these two would have met up to connect passenger service?  And please educate me how this would have happened as well say if you were traveling from Chicago to San Diego. Would the passenger cars go all the way from Chicago to San Diego and say the Burlington engine disconnect and Santa Fe connect say in CO somewhere for the remainder of the trip. Or would you get off as a passenger and get on a new passenger car with Santa Fe?  Did these two RR cross paths say somewhere in the day in CO?


thanks again all. This sure has been fun learning from you all

I don't know the answer, but I know the place to find it: the Classic Trains general discussion forum.
