Last weekend in Albuquerque prior to graduation from UNM and commissioning into the US Navy, made the drive down to the Santa Fe main about 10 east of Mountainair, well worth the effort.

No Longer Used General Definitely worth the effort! Awesome catch with that leader, that paint scheme looked great. I wish it lasted longer then it did. Thank You for your service, too. 8/18/2009 9:42:15 PM

tom starr General As I sit here laughing...and yes, nicely. Now we know where csx got its 'DARK FUTURE- Scheme from 4/17/2014 7:28:43 AM
Tom Beckett General Classic Santa Fe, the way we like to remember it. It's a little more built up there now-I have friends in Belen, get there every few years-but the area still retains much of its western flair. Somehow, BNSF "swoosh" just doesn't have the same appeal. 9/25/2014 12:51:49 AM
