Take a trip on the Santa Fe – all the way back to its founding and forward in time to the late 19880s. The end of an era is close at hand her and Santa Fe F-units and FP45s head up the SUper Chief and the San Francisco Chief just prior to Amtrak’s takeover. Then hop aboard Santa Fe’s first cross-country piggyback train, the Super C. We see the Super C out of LA, over Cajon Pass to Belen and then pulling into Chicago.
A short list of what is included in this amazing video: 90 MPH cab Ride, First Generation Warbonnets at work, ALCO PAs doing their passenger work, many named trains, the high-speed intermodal the Santa Fe became famous for…and a caboose ride. Hop aboard and give a Santa Fe Salute!
