Jack Delano’s train has stopped at the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe yard in Winslow, Arizona. While stretching his legs, Mr. Delano captured this image as an engineer was climbing up to the cab of his locomotive. This is an EMD model FT diesel-electric freight locomotive, and as one of the newest members of the fleet, has been washed to look its finest for the run.
Heard they had a loud cab, but smooth ride.
I can attest to that! I worked with F7 locos during my brief stint as a brakeman on the T&P. They were considerably louder than Geeps. But I still liked riding in them.
