Remarks & Notes 
Making its final approach to the entrance of Naval Base Ventura County, VCRR 1704 finds the morning light as it leads a long string of empty auto racks through town that are bound for the storage tracks on the base. Built in 1952 for the Santa Fe Railway, the 65-year-old locomotive started life as the ATSF 2196. The locomotive would go onto land in the hands of Rail America where it was placed in Ventura in the early 2000's that it continues to perform today. In 2014 the locomotive was painted into the Genesee & Wyoming Inc. paint scheme that, in my opinion, better represents the VCRR than its previous Rail America paint job accomplished.
