The Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway System may be the best-known railroad in the U.S. The Santa Fe inspired its own movie and popular song. The red, silver, black, and yellow “warbonnet” design of its famous passenger train, the Super Chief, has appeared on thousands of toy and model trains. All Santa Fe passenger trains featured these colors for over 40 years.
 
The Super Chief, the first diesel-powered train, was introduced in 1937. Its route was not only the shortest between Chicago and Los Angeles, but it was also the fastest. The locomotive cruised for long stretches at 90 miles per hour, traveling the 2,224 miles separating the two cities in less than 40 hours, including stops.
 
In 1951, the Pleasure Dome lounge was added to the Super Chief. The elegantly decorated lounge was on the main level. The upstairs dome selection contained fully rotating seats for panoramic viewing of the southwestern scenery. Beneath the dome was the Turquoise Room dining area, which was a private dining room.
 
The Super Chief was the flagship of the AT&SF run to the west coast. The preferred train among members of the Hollywood elite, distinguished businesss leaders, and prominent politicians, the Super Chief was often referred to as the world’s best passenger locomotive.
