Steam Locomotive Madam Queen

The story of the Santa Fe 5000 "Madam Queen" steam locomotive continues in Amarillo, Texas. A city which may have never existed if it were not for the influence of railroads crisscrossing the Texas Panhandle. Instead of me attempting to tell the stories behind the Madam Queen I will instead try to find useful and informative information already available on the web and link to those resources.

I will also see if I can discover what the city has in mind for her now. I have heard lots of stories about previous proposals and hope to chase down some of those stories for the Story Channel as well.
