Come explore New Mexico history with a ¡COLORES! double feature! This is a free event. Katherine Stinson: Her Story - Before there was Amelia Earhart there was Katherine Stinson. A decade after the Wright Brothers lifted off the ground, Katherine Stinson achieved the unthinkable in a male dominated field: she learned how to fly! This is the inspirational story of a brave, talented, young woman who fought for what she believed in, traveled around the world, set records, cheated death, and shows us that anyone can accomplish their dreams. Albuquerque's Historic Railroad Shops - For over 70 years the Santa Fe Railroad operated a huge repair and work shop in Albuquerque - over twenty locomotives could be rebuilt in each of the huge five-story, glass story buildings. The shops were the heartbeat of the city and    economic engine that helped power a nation. Take a fascinating voyage through these tremendous buildings and the remarkable experiences of the people who worked there.
