Brand New B40-8W's

Class, Class, Class. If this train coming at you can't get your blood flowing, nothing can! B40-8W, 507, 508, 509 and 510 on their first trip west from Chicago. The units have just past the old Santa Fe Speedway ("The Action Clay Track!") back on the left in the trees and racing down into the valley towards Lemont and Joliet beyond. It's October 1990 and thoughts of a merger haven't begun to enter our heads. This was the highlight of Santa Fe railfanning for me.
Them Warbonnets were beauts when they were new :D I can smell the fresh paint from here.
Great shor. Really like that paint!
I hate you dog.:tongue::wink::teeth:, I missed most of the clean Santa Fe era much to my constant chagrin.
They are soooo new they do not look real.
Quite the catch.
Man it reminds me of some just opening a box of kato ATSF Dash-9s nice new and and wut a nice smell
