    It might be a little while before I get to them (Only got about 700 other images before them!) but I assure you there are some goodies in there.

    Yay! Blackhawk was THE source for movies and slides back in the day. I have some of their N&W, VGN and D&RGW (NG) slide sets.

    An F-9B! So much less common than those ubiquitous F-7B's! How nice!

    Oh, wait. I still can't tell the difference... :notworthy::p

    For those of us who lived it and saw it, especially as railfans, it was quite spectacular. But it also marked a major change point in railroading, which in it's own way was quite sad.

    Pretty close, but I looked closer at the cars trailing the locos and they appear to be different consists, but its likely that they were taken within a matter of days.

    A quintet of E-Units, led by E8A 351, pull the San Francisco Zephyr during a chilly December day in 1973 somewhere near Denver (Bob Jordan)

    All I have to say about this first one is that it is simply Grande. January 1975 (Bob Jordan)
