Splitpair kicks us off this week with this Halloween-scheme FEC locomotive, the 102 northbound at Dania... Never heard that term. I assume it refers to "dressing up" as an Alaska engine?

I was trying to sound like a Pentrex narration. I was referring to the orange and black as Halloween scheme. I don't think this is a widely used term for this particular FEC scheme.

It does look kind of like Alaska RR, doesn't it?


I want to give a big THANK YOU to Fitz for having taken this over for me last week while I was away on a family emergency. You took good care of the POTW and you filled in for me without hesitation nor complaint. Thanks!

My pleasure, Adam. Very nice selections this week. I think that Santa Fe cab unit is on display at Barstow, not sure. It was one of the two matched diesel helpers that we rode behind on the maiden excursion of ATSF 3751 in December 1991. :tb-biggrin:
