Run For the Border

March 21, 2010

In the summer of 1990, I made a quick trip to the Santa Fe Trans-con in search of the first GP60M’s. As the GP60M’s were just going into service, I saw a lot more blue & yellow than warbonnets. At the time, that was a disappointment.

Santa Fe B40-8 7426 is WB at West Texico, NM on June 9, 1990

Texico is at the Texas-New Mexico border. The water tower in the background is in the town of Farwell, Texas. Farwell is where the Slaton sub, from Cleburne, joins the Trans-con.

Note the 30 mph speed boards for the towns of Texico and Farwell.
