Drove by the Tacoma Rail offices, check out the caboose out front....
It's in the new paint scheme!
Swung thru Tacoma real quick to see if anything was happening...
Nope, all quiet.
Couple of MP15AC's chillin...
And some other power in the shadow of Mount Rainier.
Swung thru Tacoma today and seen GP40's resting between jobs..
They always manage to keep they're locomotives clean somehow!
Very cool to see these bright schemes! Even better to see cabeese in 2022 with windows intact!!!
And here it was 12 years ago, almost to the day:
Found my two fav TR locos yesterday!
The 3000 is actually an SD40-2 internally, even though it looks to be an older SD40. The 3001 is just an SD40 internally, with a 16 cylinder engine.
Love that they kept the flaired radiator though!
Drove thru T-town yesterday and found some various Tacoma Rail units working!
Seems TR is using MP15AC/GP40 combo's in the yards lately...
Looks recently washed!
Very cool Kurt! I like that the switchers both have slightly different paint schemes.
Interesting how they call the 3001 an SD40-2. Must have been completely gutted and rebuilt with a 16-645E?
Yup, same as the 3000.
That's the TR shops in the distance on the right, they service BNSF and UP locos here, as well as they're own.
