Atchison Topeka & Santa Fe
Alco Passenger Locomotives
Like so many other roads, the Santa Fe bought one prewar DL109. The only railroad to buy more than one was the New Haven. Some roads, including the Santa Fe also got one of the B Unit DL110s. There are those who feel this is one of the finest looking locomotives due to the long swept back nose. There might have been more built if World War II hadn't changed the locomotive market. EMD was granted the right by the government to build road units. Alco got the switchers.
50L, Class 50, was built in May 1941, #69339. It was scrapped, along with the B unit, on October 4, 1960.
After the war, road locomotive construction was resumed. The first passenger units were only 1750 HP as compared with the 2000 HP of the DL109 and DL110. I don't have pictures of the 51 which was rebuilt with General Motors power.
Then came the 2000 HP PA's.
51L, Class 51, was built in October 1946, #75000. It was rebuilt by Electro-Motive in 1955 and traded in to Electro-Motive in 1968.

59L, Class 52, was built in October 1948, #76535. It later became Delaware & Hudson 16, Class P-20, in December 1967 and rebuilt by Morrison Knudsen in 1974. It was later sold to the Nacionales de Mexico as 16 on October 13, 1978. It was wrecked before 1982 and sold to Doyle McCormack. He donated it to Smithsonian but it was never accepted. It is now at the Museum of the American Railroad.

Memorial of Saint Catherine del Ricci
The Blessed Sacrament is indeed the stimulus for us all, for me as it should be for you, to forsake all worldly ambition.
