    SD9's?

    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?


    thanks!

    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.

    Question

    How about some "pool" power or lease units?

    Cool

    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.
