A few days before Christmas, I get a treat. A brand new SD70M-2 on its first trip. You could smell the new paint on this beauty.
7 AM eastbound departure for Chicago, love those CNW signals!
My favorite shot, departing Bureau for lines west, great day for railfanning!
Heading toward the coast, the Southwest Cheif passes under the (soon to be replaced) ex CB&Q signal bridge. Engine looks a little worse for wear.
The triple header slowly creeping onto the IAIS tracks.
Ex-CNW flys through the reverse curve at Glen Ellyn
Perfect location for sunset shots, and everything came together on this
Great catch, clean warbonnet on the lead, Ex-SP tunnel motor following, catch of the day for me!
Action on the rathole, as pigs north and south meet at Waynesburg, near Kings Mountain. The old warbonnet stands out in the red filter lens.
Through a Red filter lens, the old SP still pops in black and white
Sparkling lashup on a Clear blue day, wish the ACE was in the lead!
Two classic big Alco's pause at Tobyhanna with the Pocono Turn
Loading coal at 2 mph.
High nose, wish it was long hood forward!
Crew change at Howell
