Remarks & Notes 
Before the SDP40Fs Arrived Or Were Even Built!

On October 22, 1972, Amtrak train #3, the Southwest Limited, arrived on Track 6 at Los Angeles Union Passenger Terminal behind Santa Fe SD45 5526 and an A-B set of F7s. Over on Track 7 is Santa Fe F7A 306C, which will soon be heading back with 5526, 309C and the unseen F7B to the Redondo Junction roundhouse for servicing. Ralph Back caught Santa Fe 306C in Texas several months earlier. And, as Ralph pointed out, Santa Fe 306C was later renumbered 347C, perhaps the most-photographed Santa Fe F-unit of all time.
