OK, let's go chase a train! Here is Santa Fe's hottest train, the 991 departing Bakersfield for an assault on Tehachapi. Power on this sunny August 7, 1985 is the trio of GE B39-8 test beds that Santa Fe had, 7400-7401-7402. The train is still on Santa Fe tracks approaching Kern Junction. Date:

Added:
2007-08-10
