Here are two 1956 views of Main Street Station from different lots.
Bowser (with the rolled-up sleeves) is taking a photo that I wish I could see… a nice detail of the C.K. Holliday. As usual, the "Holliday" is pulling the Freight cars...
… while the E.P. Ripley pulled the Passenger cars. I love the names on these cars: "Colorado Rockies" (Wikipedia says it is "Rocky Mountains", but that's not what is says in this picture), and "Land of Pueblos" are visible here. There was also "Navajo Chief", "Painted Desert", and "Grand Canyon". Those names evoke the romance, natural beauty, and history of the American Southwest.
