Santa Fe Under Glass

Lionel Santa Fe diesel locomotive

In addition to the freight and passenger trains in use on the big layout, the Lionel display at the NY Transit Museum Annex also included wall displays of many of the train sets that made Lionel famous.

The iconic red and silver Santa Fe diesel locomotives have always been one of Lionel’s most popular upscale units. Although the the diesel shares the basic shell with numerous other railroad designs, Lionel has always taken pains to make the Santa Fe locos stand out.

While most of the similar Lionel Alco diesels had black trucks and driving wheels, the Santa Fe Units carry the silver color scheme over to the trucks. the premium Santa Fe Alco diesels also feature a wind skirt between the trucks.
