This photo, reproduced here from Santa Fe’s free booklet for kids called “The Railroad,” looks like it was taken in Colorado or Northern New Mexico, and the twelve-car consist certainly looks like the Super Chief. The photo may predate the dome lounge on the train, because the dome appears to have been drawn onto the photo, but maybe that’s just a trick of light.
