    Another really nice shot Hemi. "Technotoasters" -- never heard that term and I like it! :)

    Loved the great video! My mom was mostly raised in Cedar Rapids by her aunt, so really enjoyed seeing that part of America! I've got cousins in Waterloo and Manchester (and elsewhere) that I only have gotten to know over the last 10 years.

    A trio of Milwaukee Road coaches in the last place you'd expect them to be, Greeley, Colorado.

    They are coaches 487, 515 and 489 respectively. After passenger service ended, they were sold to the Soo Line and converted for MOW use. Sometime after that, I don't know when, they were sold to a private individual who moved them to Greeley for some unknown purpose.

    That motor is looking a bit worn. Is this any hint of their financial condition?
