Cathedral of industry
Near the main tracks in downtown Albuquerque, N.M., sits the Santa Fe Railway steam locomotive repair shops. This once-bustling facility hosted hundreds of workers who kept the engines in good repair. Today, the area is abandoned and hosts movie shoots instead of repair work. The largest building is the 165,000-square-foot machine shop, a grand structure with paned windows that stretch upward, giving the space the sense and scale of a church.
