Phoenix, Arizonia was on a spur of the Santa Fe. It came off at Williams Jct which is just West of Flagstaff on their main line. Santa Fe would drop off a car or two from their trains to be hauled to Phoenix. The consist usually consisted of coach, buffet and sometimes a sleeper.
Phoenix was on the main line of Southern Pacific from Texas & New Orleans, Louisiana

In this context another modeling opportunity for a Maerklinista: 37611 + 43603 + 43601

An Alco PA pulled short passenger train serving the line Clovis, New Mexico — Carlsbad, New Mexico and connecting with the San Francisco Chief in Clovis in 1967.pa short.png

Corrigendum (see also post #332):
The passenger car is not an ordinary coach, but an observation car.

Nice, and this would even qualify for the "mixed railroads" thread, since the Swiss loco pulls the three freight cars (two at least being of German origin) form a yard near Zurich in Switzerland to Singen in Germany.

Yes, but Morsing joined the forum only on 16 August 2014; post #221 was made on 13 July 2014; post #222 was made on 28 August 2014. So it is impossible that he was active in the #50-#100 range.

All these photos of single coach trains remind me of when we travelled from Russia into Mongolia, while doing the Transiberian train trip when my wife and I moved from new Zealand to the UK.

We had travelled from NZ to China, spent about a week sightseeing around China before hopping on a train in Beijing and travelled up to the Russian border then across to Ulan Ude which is on the eastern side of Lake Baikal. we stayed there a couple of nights and then took the train to Ulan Bator in Mongolia. The coach we were in was about the shabbiest coach in the whole consist, and was in the middle of the train. The trip down to the border town was easy enough, and in due course we pulled into the station at there. Nothing seemed to happen for ages, then the loco ran around the train, pulled half the train with our coach still attached out into the middle of the yard, left our coach there, took the rest and coupled back up to the other half of the train, then disappeared back into deepest Russia, leaving our coach all alone in the middle of a multi-track yard.

We waited there for ages, had a wander down into the town markets and found some lunch, looked at the butchers stalls with meat hanging in the full summer sun, wandered back to our coach, waited yet more time, and wondered if we were ever going to get to Mongolia.


Eventually about mid-afternoon a loco appeared from the border end of the station and meandered around for a bit, eventually finding its way to our coach and coupled up. Some more waiting, and then a bunch of army privates with a leader appeared, along with some border officials. Everyone was herded onto the coach, passports checked, army lads stationed at each coach door, and we waited some more.

A couple of other Kiwis who had been travelling Europe and were making their way back to NZ, and I were standing in one vestibule observing everything happening, when the army lad gets a cigarette out and starts fumbling for some matches. One of the Kiwi guys produced a disposable lighter and gives it to him, which he accepted and lit his cigarette. He goes to hand the lighter back but the Kiwi guy indicates to keep it, so he has it in his hand looking at it when the door to the coach rattles and the girl who looked after the samovar in the coach appeared and collected some more wood to fire the samovar. You have never seen an object disappear from someones hand so fast without it being a magician.

Eventually we get under way and trundle down the line, a single coach with an articulated diesel engine of some 9600 horse power doing about 15kph until we reach the border itself, at which point we stop, all the army guys line up and are accounted for by their leader, then we trundle across the border to the town on the Mongolian side.

With the above report "rounding off" the single coach series, I move on to double-coach trains, starting with an 1994 Eilzug on the Uelzen - Braunschweig line in front of a waiting car transporter coming from the VW plant at Wolfsburg.

Santa Fe train no. 145 to La Junta in Denver on 01/05/1971 (last run):

Another prototypical excuse for having a short train. The sensation is the use of a single F7A unit, while normally a steam generator equipped B unit is needed for passenger train service, since Santa Fe F7As did not have steam generators. It seems that the (converted) baggage car is a steam generator.

This train served to connect to the Santa Fe transcontinental passenger trains stopping in La Junta.

He doesn't need a steam generator ... it's that hot he's getting ventilation by leaving the door at the front of the loco open for forced ventilation while travelling ... Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh

Does not look like a BR 210 (member of the V 160 family). It's a member of the V 100 family (BR 211, BR 212, BR 213).

Text says the BR 50 had to jump in for a defective Köf.
Still this can be used as an excuse to run a BR 50 with a single car on your layout.
I have seen photos of a BR 50 with a train of three Donnerbüchsen.

Yes, since that was an exceptional run, I left the German caption for posteriority.

B Units? We don't need no B units!

ATSF EMD E8 pulling an odd and short mixed service train (the LaJunta-Denver train 28) in Castle Rock, CO on April 16, 1967. Snow on the ground, but the E8 should have heating onboard. That's 2250 hp for 7 cars.
