    The "Blue Goose" is one of the Santa Fe engines that I wish had been saved. I've got an old Rivarossi version of it that the motor and drive is history on. It does roll nicely, so it will stay a dummy, and in my world, Santa Fe did not scrap it, and it was restored like 3751. I will couple it to a couple of modern passenger diesels and run fan trips with it.
