Caption: “Waiting in Chicago in this 1940s-era photograph were no less than four streamlined passenger trains of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway, looking regal with stainless steel cars from Budd and Pullman-Standard Companies. From left to right are the El Capitan, Super Chief, Chief, and another El Capitan.”
