Out of Belen heading east, FP45 92 with Geometry Support Car 86 and Track Geometry Car 85 are off on the days inspection run.

Santa Fe FP45 92 and IC 201 sit on display at IRM. Hopefully the 92 will be on of the next engines to get repainted at IRM, it is really starting to show its age.

Lined up and ready to be viewed at IRM.
I would like to she her repainted.
