    Do you remember the railroads? The mainline of what is now the BNSF runs through Flagstaff, but back when you were there it was still the Santa Fe (Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe) mainline. The locos could have been run-through or loaner/leased units from other railroads. Passenger units would have been Amtrak.

    Though mergers and other forms of acquisitions, there are just a handful of class I railroads left in the US. You could do online searches of each railroad's roster and see if any of the locos look familiar. I would start with the following western railroads that existed in some form back in 1991:

    Amtrak
    Burlington Northern
    Denver & Rio Grande Western
    Santa Fe
    Southern Pacific
    Union Pacific

    Locomotives of the following east coast railroads frequently made their way out west:
    Conrail
    CSX
    Norfolk Southern

    Thanks Bill. Found locos of those numbers, except the last, as BNSF.

    The last loco number may not have been copied correctly. Railroad loco numbers in the US contain one to four digits. I have never seen or heard of a five or six digit locomotive number except for the unpowered control units used on the TALGO trains. You can find photos of those units by searching through my MP 17 and MP 18 threads in the Western US section.

    Thanks again Bill. I was beginning to wonder whether it may have been rolling stock other than a loco, or what we in UK call a multiple unit.
