LOCATION: The Wheels Transportation Museum,1100 2nd Street SW, Albuquerque, New Mexico, (505) 243-6269. Special thanks to Leba Freed, Jim Duffield and Annie. The ATSF Railroad came to New Mexico in 1880, and by 1915, had erected the largest steam locomotive repair shop between Los Angeles and Chicago. 1,700 men worked in Albuquerque for decades, repairing as many as 40 locomotives a month, each engine weighing up to one million pounds. When that repair work ceased, 350,000 square feet of buildings in downtown Albuquerque went idle. In the early 1990s, the Wheels Museum saved the property and ,together with the current owners, the city of Albuquerque, worked to redevelop the property as a mixed-use devel- opment, featuring the Wheels Museum. Wheels is an acronym for "We have everything everyone loves spinning," and it tells the story of the progress of society through moving." When people visit The Wheels Museum, they see everything from the tiniest Z-scale model train to an antique fire truck, from photos of the workers to a Dodge power wagon, from a home-built airplane to a train that can carry 25 children. Today, it has a wonderful weekend market and serves as a location for many major motion pictures. A Night at the Ride into the future with Western & English Today's 2016 Spring Fashion Forecast, where elegance is just as appropriate for everyday wear as it is for an evening on the town
