    At first, I tried counting the engines from the side and determined that there were only eight, maybe seven there. Then, I counted the fuel tanks and indeed came up with nine. I would have liked to have felt that consist roar by! As to how many they were pulling... not a clue!

    GP60/SD45 Kodachrome/C30-7? Kodachrome/? EMD Dash 2/SD45B/SD45/? EMD/?EMD/F45. Why I love Santa Fe.

    I've seen photos of trains with as many as 12 units on the head end, all running. I've also heard of trains with 15 units divided among head-end, midtrain and pushers.
