    More than a few. Mars light, big number boards, car body filters replacing windows--I'm surprised it still has its coupler cover.

    I believe the UP unit is an E6, they only owned one E3 and both their E3 and E6s received such modifications.

    I like the Santa Fe E1s. That smooth, uncluttered front end with the steep slope was really gorgeous. Along with the B&O EAs, some of the finest Es to polish the rails.:cool:

    Not that they dethrone Alco PAs...:whistle:

    What model is the Army locomotive, was it narrow gauge?

    Like a lot of military locomotives of that era, it was adjustable gauge, like the MRS-1. The only model designation I can find for 4700N is RS4-TC-NG.

    Count me in too, when you get that time machine running!

    That 4700N is a gem. I'm sure the photographer wasn't pleased then, but now it's a rarity.

    I serendipitously stumbled on a photo of a very similar unit in the Second Diesel Spotter's Guide.

    Davenport built 18 of them back in the 1950s. Sixteen were standard gauge, numbered in the 1200s. One, 4000, was adjustable from standard up to 66-inch gauge, and last but not least, 4700N was adjustable to narrow gauge.

    Whitcomb also built some, occasionally credited as Baldwin.

    Case closed!:)
