I really liked these hybrids. Odd that they had about the only dynamic brakes on the railroad until the SD-40-2s came along.
This is a classic of East Texas engineering, check those weld lines. There is a prototype for almost everything.
I've learned to appreciate switchers much more lately and "single digits" are a favorite.
If I were king every railroad would be required to have a unit numbered 1. Hey, Katy fans, what was with the short stacks?
