Alco PA Blotter

Instead of General Motors locomotives, this blotter features Alco PAs. Santa Fe first acquired these locomotives in 1946, so the blotter probably dates to that year or a year or two later.

The advertising and list of agents on the blotter suggests it wasn’t for passengers on Santa Fe trains, but instead was distributed to ticket agents, travel agents and other Santa Fe customers. The six-digit telephone number–MU-0111–doesn’t help date the blotter as some Los Angeles phone numbers retained six digits through the 1950s.
