Remarks & Notes 
One of Santa Fe's home made SD45-2Bs makes a rare appearance at Watson Yard with the WATBAR consist. ATSF converted eight of their SD45-2s into cabless boosters. The dynamic brakes were moved to the cab side for both temperature and balance. BNSF still has four of the units. Although they are rare in SoCal, Watson is a logical place to find one as the WATBAR and BARWAT tend to use "junk power."
