    But, Carl. Isn't the cab on the wrong end for an AC? ;)

    The Piru bridge is no longer in service but I can change that.

    Here an SD45 is pulling a local consist alone.

    And the guy who took his family for a "picnic" gets to enjoy some train watching too.

    Russell,

    funny you ask that because I had a man actually argue with me that only cabforwards were AC's. I just bit my lip and kept my mouth shut, quite an accomplishment for me. This was from a visitor during our recent Fair show, you know the type, one who knows it all.

    Back in the 40's & 50's I used to go to the roundhouse with my dad to "check the board" and i saw cabforwards and others on the wheel grinding track where they would winch the loco through the grinder to true up flat spots on drivers or wheels. The CF's were almost always called " backup mallets ".

    In all the photos in this thread there seems to be something missing.
    These were all along the right of way here in New Mexico.
