Everyday stuff in '72!
Author: santafe199

It was ONLY 50 years ago, this summer...

1. UP 74 is westbound through Topeka, KS on July 16, 1972.
Original Kodachrome slide by William A. Gibson (WAG) Sr.

Thanks for looking back!

This is an awesome picture.  I always thought the DD35As were way cooler looking units than the DDA40Xs.

I probably gave this guy a roll by while I was working on the Lawrence section crew. This was only 2 weeks after we cleaned up the 40 car derailment at the ATSF diamond at Bonner Springs. Worked about 35 hours stright that "day"

That was taken on my 22nd. birthday. I was celebrating across the river at the Santa Fe shops, where I was a Carman at the time.
