Kodachrome Reflections

September 25, 2010

Three "Kodachromes" hold an 885 train (L.A.-Houston Priority) at Crowley, TX on Feb. 22, 1989

Uncommon even in the heyday of the ill-fated merger between the Santa Fe and the Southern Pacific, a solid lash-up of Santa Fe “Kodachromes” was a rare catch by the late 1980’s.

Santa Fe U36C 8749, with an SD45-2 and an F45, holds its train at Crowley, TX. The train is waiting for a northbound to enter the siding, allowing the 885 to continue its journey with trailers and containers for Houston.

Crowley is the first siding south of Fort Worth, about 12 miles south of Tower 55.
