1967 era Santa Fe switching local passing through Bridgeport Yard on the club layout.

The former Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad, has been a lifelong favorite of mine.

Although the Santa Fe had began repainting their diesel switcher locomotives from the black and silver zebra striped color scheme, to a blue and yellow color scheme in 1960...many locomotives that were operating scattered about at various terminals on the Santa Fe, rolled around in the black and silver 1950's era colors, until approximately 1968 or so in daily service.

With a bright red "New Image" caboose circa 1966 after rebuilding in tow, this train can easilly pas for one of Santa Fe's own local switching freight trains circa 1967.
