    A F45T-2, now that is a cool/colossal locomotive. I can see SP owning some.
    I wonder if the concept ever came up.
    You gotta like it

    That last unit in the consist looks like one of those B30-7 B units. It has no cab. E062CAB3-C9CB-44A9-8BD0-4504F2A0F35A.jpeg

    I'd love to see that in a cropped, full resolution view, because I thought that too.

    Very nice. Looks like either paint doesn't adhere to stainless steel very well, or the paint shop prep didn't get done well enough...

    Way back then, I saw many of those repaints, up very close. Some looked as though they'd simply used a paint roller. Also, I have written about the poor primer work, in past BN topics.
