Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway: Information from Answers.com (5425 words)
The railroad's charter, written single-handedly by Cyrus K. Holliday in January 1859, was approved by the state's governor on February 11 of that year as the Atchison and Topeka Railroad Company for the purpose of building a rail line from Topeka, Kansas, to Santa Fe, New Mexico, and then on to the Gulf of Mexico.
Dining along the Santa Fe was often a memorable experience, whether it be on-board in a dining car, or at one of the many Harvey House restaurants that were strategically located throughout the system.
Santa Fe discontinued ferry service in 1933 due to the effects of the Great Depression; the construction of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge initiated the slow decline in demand for SP's ferry service, which was eventually discontinued as well.
Rosie the Riveter (1746 words)
It is situated east of and across Garrard Boulevard from the present Burlington Northern Santa Fe (formerly Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad) yards and the former depot.
Atchison Village, built across the street from the former location of the Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad depot and yards, was designed with winding streets, spacious yards, simple one and two story wood duplexes and fourplexes and a community center and park.
Atchison Village was selected as the first pilot project because it was a coherent neighborhood with an existing organizational fabric, and it happened to be in one of Richmond's highest crime areas.
