Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway or Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe or Santa Fe or ATSF, is a famous railroad of the western US. It is now a fallen flag as it merged with Burlington Northern to form BNSF in 1995.

ATSF was always quite fan friendly so there are a lot of models of ATSF stock being made by model railroad manufacturers in a number of color schemes. The warbonnet scheme is particularly popular. The wikipedia article is an excellent reference to these schemes.

ATSF was an early diesel advocate for its passenger trains.

Although licensed by BNSF as the successor company, sets 10020 Santa Fe Super Chief and the matching 10025 Santa Fe Cars Set I, 10022 Santa Fe Cars Set II are ATSF prototype
