Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe FP45 # 92 at the Illinois Railway Museum on May 23, 2004

Santa Fe #92 is an FP45 built by EMD in December 1967 as Santa Fe #102.  It is one of 9 FP45s built for passenger service on the Santa Fe. It is powered by a 20 cylinder engine producing 3600 horsepower. In 1970, #102 was renumbered to #5942. It was rebuilt in October 1982 and was renumbered to #5992. In 1989 it was renumbered to #101 and in 1990 was renumbered again to #92. It was retired in January 1997 and donated to the Illinois Railway Museum. Though two of the Santa Fe’s FP45s were destroyed in accidents, the other seven all survive today.
