Digital Live Sound Video: A long Santa Fe freight train passing by. a video by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I photographed this digital live sound video last night, at the Oak Park Society of Model Engineers,H.O Scale Model Railroad Club in Oak Park Illinois.
I was in a sort of a "Santa Fe" mood, and decided to operate an early 1970's era freight train from that particular railroad.
The locomotive is an Athearn model of an EMD GP 35 roadswitcher, painted in the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad's 1960 to 1972 era blue and yellow color scheme. Several 1960's and 70's era cars are in tow.
On the rear are two Santa Fe cupola cabooses. The lead caboose is wearing the "New image" 1966 color scheme from when the Santa Fe began rebuilding their cabooses at the Cleburne Texas railroad shops, while the rear caboose wears the original "Plain" color scheme.
