photo by Bob Tetro

Bob Tetro photographed the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fé Railway Shops in December 2010.

The former Santa Fé Railway Shops in Albuquerque, New Mexico, consist of eighteen surviving buildings erected in 1916 and 1924. The complex is located south of downtown in the Barelas neighborhood. The buildings, which constitute an historic village in the heart of Albuquerque, once housed the largest urban industry in New Mexico, employed more people than any other business in Albuquerque, and had more to do with the growth of the city than any other event or enterprise.

Given the site's unique resource and unparalleled opportunity for urban revitalization based upon the adaptive re-use of an historic structure, various plans have been discussed for the Santa Fé shops, including a transportation museum to be called the Wheels Museum, a multi-use retail and exposition center, and a state-of-the-art digital film studio.
