Merger? What Merger?

Two Santa Fe freights meet at Rosenberg, TX on Oct. 19, 1997

Warbonnets abound in this view at Rosenberg, TX on Oct. 19, 1997. More than 9 months have passed since the merger between the Santa Fe and the Burlington Northern, yet no overt changes are visible.

Yet I knew that the metaphorical storm clouds of change were just over the horizon, so I jumped at any chance to capture solid sets of Santa Fe  power before they disappeared forever.

Santa Fe C40-8W 831 is stopped in the Rosenberg siding as a southbound stack train passes by on the main. As soon as the stack train clears, the 831 will continue its northward trip to Kansas City.
