    This is a followup to my entry in the weekend photo contest, because the story goes a little bit beyond the photo that I actually entered in the contest.

    This is the photo I entered in the contest:

    And this is what happened afterwards:

    After that, I couldn't even see the train, and the air was white with smoke for quite a while after.

    Good ol' EMD's, loadin' up with un-burnt diesel. I rememeber UP frieghts with SD40-2's that sat for a while, then left Argo Yard covered in a blanket of white that resembled fog!! :eek:mg:

    Wow! Looks like they are changing out a frozen traction motor for a "dummy" wheelset to get it to a shop. Makes me nervous lookin' at that wheelset hanging off the plow!! :eek:mg:

    Traction motor burned out, so I was told.
    Installing temporary axle until locomotive could
    get back in for inspection. After this, it was headed
    back for major repairs!

    OK, thanks. I had some of 3751 but they are old. Good luck, and I know there are a lot of Santa Fe survivors out there. :tb-biggrin:
    Therefore this one can't qualify, and I probably should put it in the Cutting Room Floor, but heck, if it ain't Santa Fe, I don't know what is. Taken at Railfair 99 in Sacramento, CA.

    A second photo, that I was thinking of using in the Southern Pacific contest!

    Complete set of 3M Southern Pacific diesel locomotive lettering!
    [​IMG]

    As you can see, almost TOO big to photograph indoors when laid out on floor!
    Overall size is maybe close to 4x8 foot stacked. And close to 14 foot long when laid in straight line.
