Air Force Publicity photo - collection of Jim Pattillo
"This picture shows USAF 7126 at Tinker AFB in Midwest City, OK., a suburb of Oklahoma City. This is an Air Force Publicity photo that was given to me many years ago by a friend that worked at Tinker. When I worked for the Rock Island in OKC, I remember seeing this unit DIT in the train of a Santa Fe Local which ran over Rock Island tracks. This was in the early 1970s. The engine number was white lined so I guess it had been retired."
