Santa Fe Railway piggyback train symbol 119 at Caliente, CA

Sealand container on train symbol 119 at Caliente, CA

The engineer still has the units in full dynamic. Notice that the couplers between the piggyback flats are jammed in. International shipping containers were just starting to show up on a regular basis in 1974. Looks like that Sealand container had some rough handling.

The F45s came to Santa Fe in July 1968. For awhile it seemed they were all over Tehachapi, but soon they began to wander over the whole Santa Fe system. Initially numbered in the 1900 series, they were renumbered into the 5900 series in July 1970. Disk 40
