Today's picture was taken in 1943, and shows a diesel "Streamliner" locomotive. It was taken at the train station in Albuquerque, NM. I live in Albuquerque for 20 years, and the train station is still there. Once my wife and I thought it would be fun to ride the train, so we took it from Albuquerque to California for a vacation. Turned out to not be a fun ride. The Amtrak experience is not a good one. The Amtrak employees are very rude, and it was a lot like taking a greyhound bus somewhere.
