Hello "GDRMCo,"

The Santa Fe Railway Historical & Modeling Society site at www.atsfrr.com has links to photos and information on the 51-class Alco passenger diesels. If you have some more specific questions about them, please ask away.

So long,

Andy

From my own recollections, the 51 class were Alco PAs. The 51LAB were eventually rebuilt by EMD and were dubbed Christine. The locomotives didn't remain on the property very long after being rebuilt as the Santa Fe experienced problems with the wiring. Apperantly EMD wired the locomotives wrong
