Remarks & Notes 
ATSF sent this beauty to EMD LaGrange as its representative for the 50th Anniversary celebration of the EMD FT103 demonstration tour. The 101 was one of the first two engines to be repainted into the “new” Super Fleet paint scheme a few months earlier in July 1989. Five more FP45’s followed and the rest is history. The Santa Fe FP45 series in the red and silver warbonnet get my vote for top ten best looking diesel of all time. The 101 was built 12-67 at LaGrange for passenger service and was delivered as # 102 in the red and silver warbonnet (with small black Santa Fe name). This engine went from 102 to 5942 to 5992 to 101 to 92 with GP60m deliveries (Super Fleet revived the 100 series but not in original builder sequence). The 101 retired to the Illinois Rail Museum as # 92. It should be noted that the 101 (operating as 102) is also famous for, along with # 100, pulling the record breaking January 1968 inaugural run of the Super C intermodal westbound from Chicago to Los Angeles.
