Santa Fe 3751 Begins Her Journey… On The Freeway
Following a time honored route from Union Station in Los Angeles to San Bernardino, the Santa Fe 3751 began her round trip excursion run for the special “San Bernardino Railroad Days Celebration” in 2014.
This clip has some excellent pacing shots of the glorious old steamer, making its way down the Interstate 10! Those lucky enough to be on the 10 that day had quite the sight, though it is sure to have caused some confusion for most drivers!
Its not every day you get to see such a seasoned steamer flying down the tracks on a Los Angeles freeway!
