Trains running on the walk around visit
Author: santafedan

Here are two trains running tonight.  The 31 car reefer is headed back to the west coast.  I always wanted to have a long string of reefers.
There is a Santa Fe modelers meet in March here in Indiana.  These are the two that I will have ruining. Never too early to be sure they will run well.
All locos are powered.  There are two entrances to the lower level run through with 3.5% grades.  This simulates Raton Pass.  They are hidden via the tunnel in the first scene and the other is on the opposite side of the layout.

Beautiful layout....and especially beautiful El Capitan and reefer train.  Those Santa Fe trains stood out among everything else in the country in the "good ol' days" of my era.  I rode the pre-highlevel El Cap from Williams, AZ to Newton, KS in about 1956 and clocked her at 106 somewhere around Las Vegas, NM.  I noticed that my coffee cup was doing strange vibrations in the diner and when I saw how fast the poles were flying by, I decided I'd better clock her.   I still run an HO Chief with an ABA set of Alco PA's and a reefer train with FT ABBA power.  But I have to run them slowly on an eastern mountain layout.
