Remarks & Notes 
ATSF train 19, The Chief, is seen with a nice set of FT units leading the way, near Isleta New Mexico in 1947. I always liked the FTs, and the fact that Santa Fe ordered their sets with regular couplers between the units, instead of a semi-permanent drawbar type coupling arrangement, as was found on most, if not all, other roads with FTs. Also neat looking was that row of portholes on the car-body sides. Always wondered though why the B units had an extra porthole window (5 instead of 4) on one side only, found on both passenger and freight units. Anyone know the purpose of the 5th porthole? Sid, any input? Otto Conrad Perry photo, from my collection.

The Santa Fe's warbonnet paint scheme on passenger diesel locomotives was one of the most iconic in railroading. It appealed to travelers and modellers alike, and helped brand Santa Fe all the way from Chicago to California and Texas.
