Riding the Coal Avenue bridge over the railyard this morning I saw this: the California Zephyr, a string of cars in the old fashion, being towed behind the Amtrak. I had to stop and chat up the proprietor, a fellow named Alvin Bishop. The cars were built in 1948, when streamlined meant something. Bishop’s company restored them, and does high-end tours out of California. They were headed for Santa Fe. The Amtrak drops them in Lamy, and the local hauls them up to the Capitol City.
