The Santa Fe Will Rise Again

As a kid I always like the red and silver paint of the Santa Fe Warbonnet paint scheme.

 

I was really happy when the Santa Fe decided to get back to their roots after the ill fated merger attempt with the Southern Pacific, re-painting the blue and yellow engines with the old style red and silver from the the Super Chief.

 

But then the Santa Fe went away and the pumpkins started to appear.

 

What I find interesting is that the Santa Fe still exists in some out of the way places, down some lonely streets and off on the secluded spur lines.

 

It is on those lines as above, the Santa Fe will rise again, if only for a brief moment every now and then.

 

A pair of former AT&SF GP60M's in Warbonnet paint switch tank cars at a foam plant on the Kimberly Industrial Lead in Fullerton.
