Railroad Cancels: 1898 - 1902 Components of the BNSF -- Part 4: The Santa Fe

The Santa Fe, or the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad, was chartered in 1859 and lasted as an independent railroad until its merger with the Burlington Northern in 1996.

The addition of the Santa Fe was the last major merger or acquisition in the creation of the BNSF.

"The A.T. & S.F. Ry. Co." is spelled out in the cancellation of thi stamp.
