A 1970's era Santa Fe freight train speeds across an urban viaduct.

I photographed this digital live sound video recently, at the Oak Park Society of Model Engineers,H.O Scale Model Railroad Club.

A 1970's era freight train from the former Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad, zips along an elevated railroad embankment crossing an urban viaduct with several cars in tow.

The locomotive is an Athearn model of an EMD model GP 35 roadswitcher, painted in Santa Fe's pre 1972 "Book Ends" color scheme. Toward the rear of the train is a Walter's trainline Series model of a Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railroad Pulman Standard 52 foot Airslide covered hopper in the Rock Island's 1974 "New Image"light blue color scheme with "The Rock" advertising slogan.
