First Santa Fe Warbonnet (editor's title)

Front of Santa Fe streamlined locomotive
A foreshortened portrait of one of the Santa Fe Railway's early streamlined diesel locomotives, lit by full sun. The locomotive was designed as part of the Super Chief, "a name world-famous as a synonym with de luxe and speedy travel," according to Beebe. He took the photograph for his book, "Highliners: A Railroad Album" (1940), that emphasized railroad drama. Santa Fe's streamliner, known as the Super Chief, ran between Chicago and Los Angeles.
