few Santa Fe from the "boxes" . .
Author: 3rdswitch

. . a few more resurected really dark slides that with the help of Photoshop have become lookable anyway.
top: on a dark and gloomy morning Santa Fe's eastbound Super C has just begun it's daily race to Chicago at Bandini, CA on the 3rd District just a few miles out of it's origination at LA's Hobart yard 3-73.
middle: an eastbound has just emerged from cloud cover on SP's Mojave Sub at Sand Cut, CA about fifteen miles out of Bakersfield, CA 5-74.
bottom: a quintet of 45 models leads an eastbound near Hodge, CA on Santa Fe's First District 1-73.

I really like that third pic. Thanks for sharing. Almost a matched set of SD45s in both locomotive model and paint scheme except for the SD45-2 on the point.

There's just "something" about those flared radiators... Wow!

Seriously! I know "Hustle Muscle" is GN's tag, but it really applied to the 45's, no matter who rostered them.

Heavy bass, and lots of it. Every locomotive is 20 cylinders. As for aesthetics, all in the superior pinstripe scheme.

In the first photo, a regular SD45 is leading and two F45s are trailing. Did train crews prefer the regular 45s to the F variety? Or, is that the way the mechanical department lashed them up and no one had any say?

USUALLY, just the way the power lines up. Back then you got what you got.

The middle photo looks like a 901 train. Reefers and insulated boxes up front, trailers on the rear. A real mortgage lifter.
