OVERHAUL: A HISTORY OF ALBUQUERQUE’S LOCOMOTIVE REPAIR SHOP
Historian Richard Flint shares how Albuquerque’s, expansive, now abandoned locomotive repair shops were once a driving force in the city’s economy and crucial in developing a middle class.
STEAM LOCOMOTIVE 2926
Built in 1944, the 2926 locomotive ran a million miles before retiring in 1953. Lovingly restored by the New Mexico Steam Locomotive and Railroad Historical Society, her whistle now blows again.
Portrayed by Jodie Foster in the film, The Mauritanian, Albuquerque lawyer Nancy Hollander shares how she relies on storytelling and her fight to free Mohamedou Ould Salahi from Guantánamo Bay.
