Looking for memorabillia

by William Finder / July 7, 2004 6:01 AM PDT

Does anyone know of a source for Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad memorabilla and gift items - specifically engineer's coveralls and cap with official logos for a 1 to 2 year old little boy?

His great-grandfather worked for Santa Fe for thirty years and I'm in the process of building a replica of one of the trains as a gift for the little guy. Sure would like to have the uniform to go with it!

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. (All I could find on Google were places to get posters.)

Hi, William!

Try this site.

http://www.blytmann.com/santafe.htm

I have shown only a few selected articles that anyone can buy at railroad meets, etc. for very reasonable prices.

So railroad meets could be a source.

A time table is for sale at:

http://www.ioffer.com/bi/apex-auctions--SANTA-FE-RAILROAD-TIME-TABLE-1966-MEMORABILIA-FT-WAYNE--1.1-88.103-2935270

Check this one out.

Santa Fe "The Railroad" Booklet. This 1962 edition is in excellent shape and has wonderful pictures and maps

And this,,, (have a lighted sign)

Railroad museum in NM (maybe they could advise you)

Look here..

And

Didn't see any coveralls, but it's a start!

You might also ask around at flea markets.

Good luck!

Hi, William.

Some less than authentic stuff can be had at search on "Santa Fe." There's a railroad museum here in Galveston in the old Santa Fe HQ building. They have a gift shop, but no decent web site. Phone number is (409)765-5700.

Hope this helps! -- Dave K, Speakeasy Moderator

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
