    #114

    Was on the Walcott Excursion trip on Thursday in Rock Island and managed to catch this passing glimpse of IC&E 114. Did some research and it is a former SOO GP9 "high-hood".

    A SWEET catch!!!

    Ahhhh the Queen of the Nitrin line! Shes pretty original on the inside. Even takes a special reverser to run her.The gap you see just even with the walkway? Yeah thats wide enough to let light in and snow. You get drifts on the toilet in the winter.Shes a beast but I can proudly say I got a chance to run her. FWIW the old girl has been in the Quads I do believe since the Soo take over of the MIlwaukee road. Lived as IMRL 114 ICE 114 and STILL there after DME was taken over by CP!Girls got some legs along with 103 and 105.

    I might have some pics let me look Ok so I have VIDEO how do I upload that?
