An ancient geep - coupled to a much newer GP38-2 - gets some attention at Columbus. First-generation units like 8233 are still out on the main in local service, but the end draws near for them.

A Southern freight - with three GP35s and a single GP30 - gets to Chickasaw just ahead of the shadows. All those AAR Type-Bs make the GP30 with its Blombergs the oddball in this scene. That is B... (more)
