ABOUT THE COVER
Back in March 1992 we visited Bob Foltzs Raton Pass Division of the Santa Fe. This month we return to see how Bob solved an operational problem with his Trinidad yard. Turn to page 40 to see how he improved this layout...before he tore is up completely and started on his new one. Photo by Bob Foltz. INSET: This month, Larry Puckett Southernizes one of Atlass new high-hood GP38s to make it more typical of some of the units that served the Southern. His article begins on page 30.
