A very dirty BNSF GP39M idles in front of Vancouver Washington Train Station
Forty three and a half years later, still hanging around and barely modified! Only about a week and a half ago, in Sandpoint, Idaho on ex-GN tracks:
I recently re-scanned an old slide to get a little better resolution. From back on November 5, 1994 in Smithville, Texas.
A vistor on CSX Ohio River Sub. with the CSX Spirit of Cumberland.
Wow. That track and ballast looks like Kato Unitrack!
If you had gotten there earlier in the summer you would have seen the water tanker for fire fighting on the MOW staged next to that GN car. As i got there yesterday on the way to the rifle range they had a tanker with the BNSF saftey banner painted on it .. but did not have my camera only my 22 Hornet and 9mm S&W ....and they frown on shooting at the cars ...
I'd heard about that. Perhaps it was you who'd told me? I looked, but did not see it anywhere in the yard.
