    The second photo has a decidedly SOU 611-type feel to it, even though it's from down under!

    With those tall drivers. I bet that thing would get out and stroll right along.

    Those Aussie 4-6-2s look like a kitbash of some Canadian locos - some CP Royal Hudson sides, the front off a CN Bullet-Nose Betty, and the general streamlining of CN U4 Northern. Cool.:cool:

    One would almost think MLW made them...:cautious:

    Up till about 10 or so years ago, that rotary and the UP switcher sat there before they were moved across the highway onto the Colorado Railroad Museum grounds. I actually recall seeing the pair hiding in a lot of overgrowth when I was younger.

    Here's the same rotary, 37 years later in 2012 and a few hundred feet west

    I am guessing the replacement power plant was either a 567B or 567C?

    I don't know exactly which engine, but it was a EMD rebuild, so it'd be safe to say its one of the 567s.

    A slight correction, they're Arrow IIs, not IIIs. As for the speed, the max was 100 mph, so I'd hedge to say around 80-90.

    The UP Geep B-unit is a neat catch. According to Utahrails, the B-unit fleet didn't have much time left, as they were progressively retired between 1977 and 1983.

    You have to admit that even though rebuilt, that is one good looking unit.

    Lots of new stuff there, Will. I like those steamers.
