    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:

    Saw it at Lawrence Kansas heading to Denver. Are those both water tanks behind the tender?

    Yes, Each tender holds about 27,000 gallons of water.

    That is one thirsty engine. Only other BigBoy I have seen was 4006 at the Museum of Transport in St. Louis. Got to go through the UP Experience Car in Kansas City.
