Wow, Erik, I was just about to take a sip of coffee when that SP crew ran right up to the clearance point against El Capitan, which was passing at that moment.  I had to pour a shot into my coffee after that.  

Another excellent video clip.  Please keep creating them.

I don't see many trains running around,  saw this today and i filmed to share with you

Wow, I haven't seen a caboose in a while. I know there are some local railroads that still use them but it's been at least 10 years since I've seen one in service. Thanks for posting.

Santa Fe Trail Transportation Co. (the trucking subsidiary) had a lot of those eastern style truck tractors out in California when I was young.  In Illinois or Kansas, they probably looked like a lot of the other trucks, but out west, where Kenworth, Peterbilt, and Freightliner dominated, those Macks and International bullnoses were  less common.  Santa Fe ran a lot of GMC conventional and "Cannonballs" of all vintages.  Unlike a lot of other fleet companies, SFTT didn't really standardize on a particular make of either tractors or trailers.  Although GMC and International seemed to be favorites, SFTT seemed to buy from every truck manufacturer.  I never saw a SFTT Kenworth or Autocar, but they had at least a few from every other big truck manufacturer I can think of.

Are there any O scale models of those Santa Fe trucks from the 1950's? I'd kinda like one for my layout.

A couple of classic War Bonnets...

Stoneboro Branch, thanks for posting the photos of ATSF passenger diesels.  The photos were all new to me, and I always enjoy floating back to that era.  And then reality rears its head -- I'm older than any of those diesels, but I am still fit for service.

Tom-

Yeah; those are great shots from a private collection I'm helping a gentleman downsize by selling on the big auction website. The first two are 35mm; the last three are large 6cm x 6cm transparencies, which can be stunning when projected or even skillfully scanned. (I'm not there yet, but getting better...)  Until I got ahold of these slides, I wasn't a Santa Fe fan; just another diehard PRR guy, but now, alas, I've been bitten by the War Bonnet bug and forced to expand my horizons a bit!
