    Hi all

    I could have sworn I saw a picture or 2 of an ATSF SD9 (maybe an SD7) a few years back. However I can't find any records that they owned any SD9's or SD7's.

    Was this just somthing my brain came up with on a sleepy night or did santa fe have SD9's or SD7's?

    ATSF SD9's

    SD7's or SD9's on the Santa Fe? It never happened. Santa Fe never owned any SD units until the SD24's came out. Then they bought I think around fifty units.

    musta been a really late night for me.

    Oh well. I have 2 spare SD9's laying around, fictional sounds good to me.

    How about some "pool" power or lease units?

    well. I found the picture I was reffering to. It was an SP SD9 in an Santa fe's barstow yard.

    Santa Fe had 80 SD24s, all purchased new from EMD in two orders from 1959-1960.

    The demonstrator(s) may have done a tour on the ATSF and you could do them that way.

    Guess I can tell my Dad that the ATSF SD9 from Athearn he bought me as a kid was a waste. :lol:
