I was wondering what the length of the Bachmann Santa Fe 2-10-4 Overall Wheelbase is.  I read on Steamlocomotive.com that the Santa Fe 2-10-4 was 98.5 feet, but is this accurate to the model?

Dear FEC,
I don't have one here, but I'm told it is very close to scale.
Have fun!

I'm assuming you need the wheelbase measurements for a turntable, yes? Well adding a "fudge factor" of 5 scale feet to the wheelbase you listed, the wheelbase comes out to 14.27 inches. So I would recommend a 14.5"  turntable at the bare minimum. Though 15.5 to 16 inches or longer would be better.
