Beginning in 1940, the Santa Fe Railroad initiated a new series of promotional decoration on their extensive fleet boxcars. One of five ATSF passenger line slogans – Grand Canyon Line, Scout, El Capitan, Super Chief, and Chief – was featured on a single side of each boxcar. On the opposite side, a large Santa Fe system map was boldly applied.

Implemented until 1947, the short- lived ATSF slogan series was a common site on Santa Fe freight lines, and rates today as one of the most notable schemes in freight car history.
