A 1950's and 60's era Santa Fe local freight train in H.O Scale.

The former Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe is proboubly my all time favorite railroad that had served the city of Chicago Illinois where I had grown up many years ago.

The former Santa Fe had used this black and silver "Zebra Stripe" color scheme on their diesel yard switcher locomotives from 1950 until 1960, however, a number of these rolled around in this color scheme until the late 1960's at some of their terminals system wide unti repainting or retirement.

A dark blue color scheme with yellow frame and ends had replaced this color scheme in 1960, but it took a while before the paint shop could finish the repainting task.
