Photo of the Month: July 2005

Photo of the Month

July is not usually one of my more productive months for photography, and I didn't have many July photos scanned... but I managed to dig up this shot from Dallas in July 1992.

It's July 26, 1992, and a pair of Santa Fe geeps (GP60 # 4000 and GP20 3017) idle side-by-side near Santa Fe Dallas yard tower. Less than two years after this photo was taken, Santa Fe completely exited the city of Dallas when it opened its new yard north of Fort Worth at Alliance. Visit the above location today (it's located just south of Interstate 30 near Fair Park), and the picture is much different... the old Santa Fe yard is now the maintenance and servicing facility for DART (Dallas Area Rapid Transit) light rail trains.
