What year did they put the CTC in?

The Keenbrook shots sure bring back memories of steel wheels looking for adhesion on steel rails at that location. I can almost hear the grinding, gritty sound, especially if they were sanding.

Like everyone else - thanks for posting these

Can you read the road number on the rightmost RSD-5 in this shot?

Thanks for all the vintage ATSF!

If you mean the set of two at Barstow, they are the 2131 and 2141.

Uh, oh. That creates a problem for the Great Dynamic Brake Debate of 2007, eh Evan?

I see that the ATSF 2099 was built as ALCo RS2 DEMO #1600.

Right. Then sold to the Santa Fe as their 2110. Renumbered to 2099 to make room for the RSD-5s.

It had dual controls and a steam generator.

Awsome pics of the old Santa Fe back before I was born! Wish I was born in the 60s or 50s instead of the 70s!
