Santa Fe Saturday - the 199 meets a 968 at Christie
Author: Goatboat

During the 1992 NRHS Convention in San Jose, we ventured off to catch some Santa Fe action. On a warm Thursday afternoon, we caught a meet at Christie siding between the uber-hot 199 train and a 968 train. This was still ABS-TWC territory at the time. We gave the 968's conductor a ride to the head end after he lined the west switch back for the main.

Man I miss those days. This pic looks like it could be in a book.

Four axle Superfleet on the manifest and 20-year old six axles on the hotshot.
