Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe
Palmer Lake, Colorado
June 7, 1996
A southbound Santa Fe freight passes alongside Palmer Lake, Colorado's namesake body of water on the single track portion of the Joint Line between Palmer Lake and Colorado Springs. This train is on former Denver & Rio Grande Western (now Southern Pacific) rails; the abandoned Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe line between the two localities formerly ran east of the lake.
