Not the RDCs but the car below them?
Author: edsaalig

Anyone know what type of pasenger car is in the photo below the tow RDCs?  Did it belong to the Santa Fe?   I don't know when or who took the photo.  Can you help?

Captain Obvious says the locale "Looks to be Albuquerque". And the photo date has to be prior to April 1968 when the "El Pasoan" RDC run was discontinued.

I'd say "JPB" is on the right track, if you'll pardon the pun. And what an interesting image, so full of SFe history...

This is an intersting picture.  If it is ABQ it is likely my dad was on the engine as fireman or engineer.  I am guessing the picture was around 1950 give or take.  I think it is ABQ but the I don't remember all the large buildingss in the down town area.  I wish there was more picture both North and South, then we would be more sure where it it.  The picture was  taken about noon.  I agree with the others about what kind of car it could be.  Thanks for the picture,

The RDC's only ran out of Albuquerque from 1965 to 1968.  The building under construction in the background is probably the "National Building" at 505 Marquette Ave., on which construction began in January 1965 and finished in July 1966.
