RE: TKM abbreviation
I do not have access to their specimen collections or catalogue, but I
believe the "TKM" specimens are currently housed at the NMBGMR [NEW
MEXICO BUREAU OF GEOLOGY AND MINERAL RESOURCES MUSEUM], NMMNH [NEW
MEXICO MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY] or Silver Family Geology Museum,
University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM

That clarifies part of the problem. As you say, the question is where
are those specimens.

TKM isn't an institution designation but more of a field description
of the formation the fossils were found. In this case TKM is the
"TKm" on the subsurface geologic map which include the McRae
Formation. The McRae Formation is a formation which spans the latest
Maastrichtian [Cretaceous] into the earliest Danian [Paleocene]
check the map explanation on page 72 of this article.
The question is where are these specimens labeled with the "TKM"

I've been searching without success for the institution that uses
TKM for specimen numbers. Specifically I'm interested in the McRae
Formation specimens attributed (?) to Alamosaurus, mentioned in a
couple of papers by Lozinsky but with no abbreviation list.
