Santa Fe Train
Here's to the Santa Fe Train! Retired from the tracks and displayed upon a vintage strong box base, this beefy train carries quite a load. Created entirely from recycled remnants and curios from yesteryear, this model mode of transportation is symbolic of the old locomotives that rolled westward and paved the way for high-speed travel and communication. With a combination of vintage telephones and old Ford Model T coils, the tracks are laid—from out of the past the Santa Fe Train rides again. Smoking like a stogie, the Santa Fe Train takes its name from an old cigar box and proudly displays the "Lady Luck" logo at the rear of the engine. This vintage replica comes complete with carry-on ash tray and recalls bygone days and old ways of blowing smoke. This muscular model of flexing steel weighs in at forty plus pounds and features a fabricated funnel smoke stack and shovel head cab. This iron horse carries an iron poker and clears the track with a high voltage cattle catcher while pushing a painted horse shoe, just for luck. Sparks fly from a rear wheel. Faster than a speeding bullet and as powerful as a locomotive, the Santa Fe "2:05" ran on time, stopped on a dime and featured all the whistles and bells. Time rolls on and the engineer's pocket watch still has a few ticks left as a tribute to the rolling steel wheels of yesteryear. Here's to the Santa Fe Train!
