43 Years of Santa Fe Diesel History

January 27, 2010

3 generations of EMD's hang out at HB&T's Milby Street roundhouse in Houston on Dec. 16, 1996

Nearly 43 years of Santa Fe diesel history congregate at the HB&T engine facility just east of downtown Houston.

GP7U 2148 was built as GP7 2757 in September 1952. SD75M 202 was built in March 1995, part of the very last order of locomotives to be delivered as ATSF units.

The GP7 has seen it all – the end of steam on the Santa Fe, streamliners behind matched sets of warbonnet F units in the 50’s and 60’s, all the way to the end of the Santa Fe itself.
