THE AT&SF DEPOT AT SANTA FE SPRINGS

The AT&SF depot building, formerly located at the Santa Fe Springs station, is long gone. However, a replica depot was built for display in a park within the City of Santa Fe Springs, California as part of a railroad exhibit. It is still there and very well kept. These photographs were used to design this replica depot by a friend of mine, who was the railroad consultant for the design and construction of the exhibit,  as very little other data was available to him at that time. I took these photographs around 1962 as I recall. I used a Speed Graphic 35 camera, which I still have. It is very heavy and pain in the neck. The shutter must manually cocked for every photograph taken. The film was advanced by rotating a knob, but it was all I could afford in those days. I was fortunate to have it.

About THE OLD MACHINIST

I am 87 years old and married for 65 years. My wife passed away in 2016. I am a retired engineer and spent 35 years developing INS gyroscopes. I was a High School mentor in physics, a mountaineer, a model builder, a machinist and I have a degree in Physics. My interests include railroad history and photography, science history, cosmology, interesting people, and old engineering drawings. I place a high value on my friendships. I enjoyed my life and I am trying to look forward with a sense of anticipation and curiosity.
