I am in Abu Dhabi. There are no trains here. Jet lag sucks.

On the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad in June of 2009.
From October 1984 at Hudson, PA near Wilkes-Barre, the D&H puts on a show with a mixed bag of power and pushers on a heavy freight:
More shots of power, a pair of GP39's
Followed by a GP38 and an SD$)-2,
What a cool mix of power on that train!
Those tracks look a bit weedy/grassy. Deferred maintenance?
Yes, for sure. The D&H was struggling. Guilford bought the D&H that same year, failed in its efforts to restore it to profitability and just four years later, sent the road into bankruptcy.
This morning about 10AM.
Those F59s are so much better looking than GE's P40s and P42s. Thanks for posting Steve.
Well, yes, but not as cool looking as the GP40X's with the flared radiators. Sigh.
