Flagstaff in more interesting times
Author: FT

When I lived in Utah, I tried to make one or two trips to the norhhern AZ area a year. The
number of trains and SF variety in the high country was a strong magnet for this boy.
March of '74 and the high thin clouds helped soften the light for this west bound in the AM. Full sun can be a problem on e-w tracks, if the trains are out of the sun. I was
stopping over on my way back from Mexico. Had to kick back with some "modern" power after
all those FA's and FM's. I think that smoke at the rear of the set was a gator.

Wow! Awesome photo, Keith.

What time frame did you live in Utah? Didn't Kenneth live in Utah at one time as well?

This is a splendid shot. Back then, you would expect to see the FP's leading the Super-C and not a manifest.

As a departed friend of mine from Alabama was fond of saying: "That's a whole heap beautimous!".
Great photo Keith.

Grand Gold,

Ken and I were in Utah from about '70 to '77. Pretty sure I met you as a youngster at
a slide show at Don Strack's place. You were all flustered as I had shots of the CZ
with a different F than they ended up running the last few years it operated. I think it
was the 5761.

It looks like a "fantabulous" photo to me.

(apologies to Van Morrison) ;-)

Nice pic, no snow for once being in the winter (and 3 months before I was born) but I can imagine the variety then. How heavy was the Santa Fe Traffic through there then anyway!
