Remarks & Notes 
Still sporting almost all original equipment, the Super Chief climbs its way through the Sangre Di Cristo Mountains and towards the summit of Glorieta Pass. The Super Chief name was retained after Amtrak took over passenger rail service in 1971. Then in March 1974, the Santa Fe forced Amtrak to drop the name because of a perceived decline in quality after the Amtrak takeover. The train was renamed the Southwest Limited. After subsequent improvements, the Santa Fe allowed Amtrak to change its name to the Southwest Chief on October 28, 1984. In this photo, #310 leads a consist of F7's in A-B-A-B-B-A formation.

The front of the train is dark. This is just what makes the picture so good.

The Santa Fe's warbonnet paint scheme on passenger diesel locomotives was one of the most iconic in railroading. It appealed to travelers and modellers alike, and helped brand Santa Fe all the way from Chicago to California and Texas.

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
