Santa Fe's SPSF-Painted Locomotives

Last Updated: September 23, 2008


This web page is intended as an archive of images and information on Santa Fe locomotives and rolling stock that were painted in the scheme of the failed Santa Fe - Southern Pacific merger, the scheme nicknamed "Kodachrome" by fans who saw a similarity between its red, yellow, and black colors and the colors of Kodachrome film boxes.

If you have any images of SPSF-painted locomotives or way cars you would like to contribute, or if you find an error, omission, or just have some information to add, please send e-mail to atsf@railfan.net.

No official roster of SPSF-painted locomotives was maintained by the Santa Fe.
The list presented here is a composite of the lists contained in references 1 and 4 in the Bibliography and Credits page, cross-checked with available photographs. A question mark follows the locomotive number when it is uncertain whether that unit wore the scheme or not.

SPSF-painted Santa Fe locomotives that could have escaped the roster before being repainted blue and yellow are background highlighted in orange.
Click on the model designation for more detailed information on that locomotive type
If we have a photo of a specific unit, it will be hyper-linked to the unit number.
If a unit wore more than one number while in SPSF paint, the later number is given in (parentheses).
