Santa Fe Train #18

SantaFe #18 flying green flags annouces second a section is following sails around Houlihans curve at Chillicothe Illinois
Re-assigned to freight service and renumbered 5945


Repainted and renumbered 5995



Repainted back into red & silver warbonnet as ATSF 95 and donated to the Western American Railroad Museum in Barstow, CA.
Interesting - ATSF train 18 would be the combined El Capitan/Super Chief. Although this train has two big warbonnet FP45s, the three coaches directly behind the power are odd. You have to wonder if this section of the train was a special move, such as bringing Boy Scouts back from New Mexico.
