A 1970's era Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad freight train crossing the tall steel trestle., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photograph last week Wednsday night, at the Oak Park Society of Model Engineers,H.O Scale Model Railroad Club.
I have been a lifelong fan of the former Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad for many years. It was one of my favorite railroads that operated not far from me when I lived on the near southwest side of Chicago many years ago.
I was operating a 1970's era Santa Fe freight train, and took this photograph of my train as it was crossing the tall steel trestle , on a section of the club layout representing the state of Iowa.
