    You KNOW if you modeled this, the proto police would have hauled you away....
    I dunno if the pressure washer was set too high or what?? The odd thing was they were coupled next to each other!

    if this qualifies as an oddity, but obviously the wrong type of paint was used- notice how badly it's faded. Also notice where it has been burned off above the N and S. And yes, the orange looks this crappy on the other side too.....I checked.

    Seen a couple years ago on the old C&I (now called the BNSF main) that goes through my home town. What was really neat was several months latter I seen the same engine again.

    And I thought SD20s were ugly- sheesh!

    Take a LifeLike SD7, add a Cannon paper air filter and EMD 40-series cab, and presto- a coyote-ugly SD.:tb-biggrin::tb-biggrin::tb-biggrin::tb-biggrin:

    Must have been a recent repaint at the time I saw it. That pic was taken in Birmingham Alabama sometime in 2006. Thatis the easten end of the BNSF and is old Frisco territory.

    Does the old AT&N (SL-SF) trackage south of there still exist? If so, who operates it today?
