AT&SF H16-44 3007 Editors Pick!        
AT&SF H16-44 3007 at Saint Joseph, Missouri on August 28, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Built by Fairbanks-Morse in June 1951 (c/n 16L508), delivered in the black Zebra Stripe paint scheme, it was retired and traded to EMD during 1968. The Santa Fe placed two orders for H16-44's, the first order was for ten units (#'s 2800-2809, later 3000-3009) and were what would be considered Phase 1. The identifying features of the Phase 1 design includes the Raymond Loewy-styled rounded windows on the cab sides, notches in the frame to clear the brake cylinders, a slightly thicker frame (as compared to the trailing unit) . The second AT&SF H16-44 order was for another ten units (#'s 2810-2819, later 3010-3019) was a Phase 2 design, built between June-July 1952, represented by trailing unit number 3019.
