I took some photos of the Tulsa yard of locomotive service depot, hump and locomotives.
Here's more photos of Tulsa yard.
"Mike, Mike, Mike!! Guess what day it is, guess what day it is?!"
That's one of my favorite commercials, I remember when it first aired during the Indianapolis 500 maybe 10 years ago. My friend and I laughed hard for a long time, great play on words.
What are the panels above 1923's cab?
My guess would be solor panels.
PTC. The ground planes are to get above the AC units. The PTC gear is housed in the extended numberboard.
Cool stuff Joe! I like that yellow Geep
Usually for such as RCO antennas, etc.
What is the story of that yellow Geep?
I'm not sure what the story is, I just thought it looked cool. I searched Google and found more photos of it, it's a switching railroad in Tulsa. Didn't dive into it to find more information.
In the first photo, the two white cars, ahead of the single tank car, look to be a pair of those old Cryo-Cars.
I photographed a couple of those that had been converted into mechanical reefers but those don't appear to have been.
Do you know if they are in fact Cryo's?
Cars in the CRYX 8xxx series were built as insulated boxcars and not as mechanical or cryogenic refrigerated boxcars. These have been used to replace the "beer cars" that have aged out of service.
I think it's Railserve, a switching contractor for hire nationally.
