The Original Warbonnet

March 18, 2010

Time for another look at some of the very first railroad photos I took.

Santa Fe F7A 326 is at the Santa Fe's engine facility just north of Tower 55 in Summer, 1972.

By the time I took this picture, Amtrak had been in operation for just over one year. Santa Fe’s F-units that had been in passenger service were bumped into freight service, primarily in Texas and the mid-west.

Many of these F-units were re-painted into freight colors, which they wore for several years prior to being re-manufactured into CF7’s.
