Thanks for posting such a great shot. It brings back memories of seeing a pair of these locomotives leading a 131 car transfer through Blue Island in 2005. They struggled through the junction in Run 8 trying to get the train to Barr Yard. The crossing tower operator there was relieved to have such a long train traveling so slowly through his interlocking because he had a pressing need - he quickly descended the stairs to the bathroom to take care of business while the train struggled past. What a great (and funny) experience!
