It is done. At long last the superfecto!

As icing on the cake, yes, I knew both 1841 and 1881.

And just for a cherry on top, Acheson-Topeka-Santa Fe was an instaget because, when I was an adolescent, my dad tried to get me interested in/involved in/knowledgeable about the stock market by showing me some of the companies he had invested in, and helping me buy my first ever stock in that company. One of my fondest memories is of getting their annual calendar with a beautiful Old West landscape on it (Canyon de Chelly, etc.). Anyway. icing and cherry. Now for dessert.

Canyon de Chelly is beautiful. I think you should have used the green faces for a perfect week.

My wife started singing the old song for the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe question. No idea where she dug that up from! I'd never even heard it before.

"The Harvey Girls," a 1946 GM musical, where it was sung by Miss Judy Garland. I suspect more people know it from Garland's performances than from being railroad buffs...

The musical is where I picked it up from, FWIW...
