The Diesel Shop

Serving The Railfan Community since 1994

Santa Fe's diesel shop at Barstow, California provides the backdrop for #9813.

The 25th Anniversary is behind us; so what's next? For starters, A series of actual railroad diesel shop photos, both internal and external, will be the focus of each monthly front cover during 2020. The excellent Tom Chenoweth photo above gets things rolling, as the hunt for other appropriate photos gains momentum.

One of the key objectives for 2020 will be to finish the "Critter Notebook" series which began last summer. The on-going development of short photo essays for the "Remember When" series is also expected to continue. These two quasi-monthly features are an attempt at providing information that expands the knowledge base, offers a historical perspective and hopefully broadens the railfan experience. By the way, the "Yesterday's Hotspots" photo profiles produced during 2019 will remain in-place for some undetermined period.

Thanks for stopping at The Diesel Shop.
