These are photographs I made of 6900’s at East Yard in Los Angeles, Ogden and Sacramento many years ago.
These are images of the preparations of the locomotives used for a snow plowing train at Chama, New Mexico. I do not recall the exact date, but I believe they were taken in the 1980’s. The C&TS RR opened the line with this plow train and we followed in a special passenger train. It was quite a day for those on the passenger train! Enjoy.
The Old Machinist
These are images scanned from my 1969 Salt Lake City slides. This is a standard PFE ice dock. It is long gone.

The AT&SF depot building, formerly located at the Santa Fe Springs station, is long gone. However, a replica depot was built for display in a park within the City of Santa Fe Springs, California as part of a railroad exhibit. It is still there and very well kept. These photographs were used to design this replica depot by a friend of mine, who was the railroad consultant for the design and construction of the exhibit, as very little other data was available to him at that time. I took these photographs around 1962 as I recall. I used a Speed Graphic 35 camera, which I still have. It is very heavy and pain in the neck. The shutter must manually cocked for every photograph taken. The film was advanced by rotating a knob, but it was all I could afford in those days. I was fortunate to have it.
