This is the ATSF's namesake Santa Fe passenger depot in New Mexico.
At the platform, a ATSF SD39 #4006 was sitting with cabooses. The agent at the depot taught me that we would see a passenger train in an hour at nearby Lamy.

On I-40 somewhere in NM, met this westbound ATSF piggy back train.

This former Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway depot is found at 8th St, Vaughn, NM.

Vaughn, incorporated in 1919, is a town in Guadalupe County, New Mexico with a population of 867 according to the 1970 Census, 446 according to the 2010 Census. It was named after an ATSF civil engineer Major G. W. Vaughn.

According to Marci L. Riskin, the two-story Spanish Mission style depot made of brick, covered in stucco with red tile roof was built in 1908[1]. It was once accompanied with the Las Chaves Harvey House, a hotel, a turntable and a roundhouse, composing a division point. The structure is still in use by BNSF: lights at the window after dark.

sfrd14677_01.jpg: Vaughn, NM. Sep. 12, 2015

This ex-ATSF Dharuma-san is found at 4th St, Vaughn, NM. It seems used as private storage. As you see, it still keeps its original scheme including the “Ship and Travel” slogan.

SFRD RS #14677 was one of 14280–15399 series class RR-34 steel ice-bunker reefers. According to Ice Reefer Roster at Santa Fe Railway Historical & Modeling Society web site, these cars were originally 38000–38972 and 39000–39149 series reefers rebuilt from RR-W thru RR-4 wooden reefers by the railroad in 1941[1]. They were renumbered in 1945 when air-circulating fans are installed.
Mentioning the lost feet, they seem rode on ASF Ride Control trucks.

SFRD 14280–15399 series steel ice-bunker reefers:
The ORER for July 1974 shows the car under group 14302–15384 with 34 cars in place, described as follows:
AAR Designation RS, Refrig., Half Stage Icing Grates, When in Position Cap. of Bunker is: Crushed Ice 6900 lbs. & Coarse Ice 8700 lbs. & Chunk Ice 6300 lbs., Preco Flr. Air Circulating Device.
The inside length of these cars is 33 feet 1 inch, inside width 8 feet 2 inches, inside height 7 feet 1 inches, outside length 44 feet 8 inches, extreme height 14 feet 3 inches and capacity 1943 cubic feet or 77,000 pounds.
