FIRST QUARTER 2022: In this issue we begin an in-depth look at Santa Fe’s EMD SD45-2 diesel locomotives. Among the first “Dash 2” additions to the road’s roster, this six-axle saw three orders by the mid-1970s. This issue tackles the first order from 1972. All this and more in the First Quarter 2022 issue of Diesel Era!
