Remarks & Notes 
Here is another example of one of the Santa Fe 4-6-4 Hudson steam locomotives built by Baldwin Locomotive Works. This beautiful streamlined locomotive was known as the "Blue Goose". My grandmother's uncle, Robert S. McKee, was a design engineer at Baldwin, and my grandfather knew him well, and grandfather was a fan of the Santa Fe. When they retired, my grandparents purchased a blue RV in order to travel and visit the grandkids. He called his RV "The Blue Goose". I wonder now if there was a little extra meaning behind him calling his RV by this name. This BLW builders photo card is from the J. R. Doughty collection.
