    Hi Jim,

    Hah - no - new one on me...

    Only very recently - I came across information on the Boston and Maine while researching projects - thanks to Paul's wonderful route - - - that they had air service as well...





    Regards,
    Scott

    I just learned about it this weekend at the Mojave River Museum I visited while out watching the 4014. From 1948 to 1952 the ATSF flew two surplus DC-47's and four DC-54s for transporting perishables. It was known as Santa Fe Skyway. Planes were powered by four Pratt&Whitneys. They flew 2,000,000 miles over those years.

    "Sante Fe Skyway" would have been C-47s and C-54s Jim.

    ATSF C-47:
