Doing a 360 at The Loop – Pic of the Day

February 16, 2010

4 month-old Santa Fe SD45-2 5686 with a westbound manifest at Walong, CA Oct. 8, 1973

Santa Fe 5686 has been in dynamics since cresting the summit at Tehachapi some 10 miles back. It’s between switches at Walong, site of the spectacular Tehachapi Loop. It has another 38 miles of mostly downhill running before reaching Bakersfield.

The 5686 is part of the same order of SD45-2’s that included Santa Fe’s 5 bi-centennial painted units, 5700-5704.
