    We will start with a sad pic. It's a GP38 that had a very bad day. If I remember right, this was not a lead unit and no one got hurt in this cab. PIC_0684.JPG PIC_0685.JPG
    A pair of good ole GE's, PIC_0686.JPG PIC_0687.JPG PIC_0688.JPG Some ubiquitous, at the time, SD40-2's, at the east end of the Livingston, MT yard, eastbound, PIC_0689.JPG PIC_0690.JPG

    These are also from Livingston, MT in Nov 94. This GP30 came to LRC for some minor work and I think a repaint from the Eastern Idaho, PIC_0691.JPG PIC_0692.JPG MRL, PIC_0693.JPG PIC_0694.JPG PIC_0696.JPG Inside the LRC shops, from the mezanine looking down at a couple, PIC_0697.JPG This one is on the drop pit, used to be used to drop wheels out of steam engines for retiring, now for diseasils, re-wheeling or an entire truck, PIC_0698.JPG
    A pair of eastbound GP's from the cab of a unit I was riding in to test it. We did this continually with re-generatored, re-engined or rewired units to test everything. Going up and over Bozeman pass was a rush! PIC_0699.JPG And also, Cheyennes 4004 in Nov 94. PIC_0701.JPG

    What's the story on that burned BN unit? Hit a fuel truck at a grade crossing?

    It was great fun when I got to play with every kind of diseasel there, from U-boats to 70MAC's and -9's. MRL had so much variety of heritage for their units. They had that NP heritage SW and lots of different GP's, and SD's. And we, LRC, kept a large stock of parts units to help keep things running. Funnest job I ever had!

    And a few U-boats brought up to be upgraded with more radiator, rebuilding engines and recabling, re-piping and making them serviceable again. PIC_0722.JPG PIC_0723.JPG PIC_0724.JPG PIC_0725.JPG PIC_0726.JPG
