of the finest passenger trains that had ever been seen in North America.In the 1950"s, competition for the railroad came from outside the industry. Passengers started choosing their own cars and the faster airplanes. The transportation market had changed, and the great streamliners became fewer. This development caused a change in the role of the PA. By 1955, the Union Pacific had reassigned the first units of this class to freight service. Other railroads would follow suit. Locomotive after locomotive was quietly retired from this less prestigious service over the course of the years, and most of them fell victim to the cutting torch. Four Santa Fe locomotives remained preserved and were used by the Delaware & Hudson Company again for the "Laurentian" streamliner. After being pulled from this service, these locomotives survived again in Mexico, continuing to pull passenger trains. Through the intervention of many railroad enthusiasts, at least two locomotives were save from the scrap yard after being retired from service and ended up in railroad museums in Mexico. Two other locomotives are now undergoing the slow process of restoration in Portland, Oregon. One PA will be decorated in the red and silver livery of its original owner, the Santa Fe. It will be placed on display in the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC. The other PA is in better mechanical condition and will be painted in the Nickel Plate Railroad's scheme of blue and silver. This locomotive will receive a new diesel prime mover and trucks, eventually returning to operational status for special excursions. Apart from that, the Märklin model of the PA offers you the chance to grasp the elegant lines of this beautiful locomotive in all of its dimensions. The high quality model technology provides even today the appropriate experience of power and dynamism of the original.
