    If it is not locked, it is open. Bring it back any time. There is some fascinating and valuable stuff in message archives. Reminding folks now and then is a good thing! :)

    This one is heart warming. Why? My first post Navy job involved working at M-K in Boise. I rewired lots of this locomotive here! I asked my foreman if I could work the GP-30 line, because they are a lot more beautiful loco!

    Yeah!! I always get excited when I see one of the former GP30 locos running around here, especially in the BN Cascade Green/Black!!:D

    Been a long time since I saw a green and black GP30. This was in February of 2007. Sorry, no rain at the time.

    It was coming down pretty hard when I took this one. I did not want my camera to get soaked so I failed to let it stabilize before I clicked the shutter.

    Here is another one from the same day at the Museum of Transportation in Roanoke, Virginia. They were moving equipment around to get the old Birkshire out to ready it at the old N&W shops for moving it to Ohio.

    Still trains here. Mission Mountain RR. But that tenure will be ending as soon as officials and the RR get their acts together. Moving to the NE corner of own and tracks in town will all be lifted... :(

    Dang. Then it sounds like heading down to Helena along the MRL line would be in order!?

    Across the Rockies from my area. But still well worth exploring.
