    It's another dance competition. I'm in a Best Western in Hayward, not by my photos. Hopefully I'll find time to post something tomorrow.

    Not a great photo as I was looking into the afternoon sun...my son and I were going into Newman, Ca. to pick up some groceries and caught this California Northern train heading back to Tracy on SP's old West Side line:

    Lancaster & Chester SW-900 No. 91 switches a feed mill in Richburg, SC on 01/22/2019. She was built new for the road in 1965.

    The two CIT's and the white Soo engines are gone from the Kanawha River Railroad. The leases are up.

    Great catch. I didn't know SW-900s were even offered that late. I assumed their production stopped in the late 1940s.

    Northbound at Manchester GA - April 2006. So fresh you could still smell the paint.

    UP playing with fuel tenders? Nah! This was a local that did not go very far. Maybe just some weird occurrence where the crew had to split up and service two different customers where each took a different locomotive and coupled up together later? Who knows.........

    UP's GP38-2s get around. That could be anywhere here in the Calif. Central Valley.

    Had a bit of an ice jam causing this old box to get even more forlorn. PIC_0445.JPG

    Still "on the property" after all these years. That's an outstanding accomplishment. (y)

    While on the road to Minneapolis for a taekwondo tournament, I bagged this Cat-powered Geep leading empties east out the siding at Tower City, ND. Strange name for a town with no towers....

    Took a trip up to Santa Rosa to pick up some of my stuff. We went kind of "the back way" to avoid the Bay Area traffic nightmare. In Fairfield, Ca. I saw a Union Pacific freight sitting near the Bud Brewery:

    Their paint scheme is quite striking . I bagged another one in Jamestown that weekend, too.

    SW900s were built from December 1953 through March 1969 - 567s well into the 645 era! And a production run to rival the RS-1...:cool:
