Smokin' GB & W

  • Photo Contests
Green Bay and Western #305 smokes it up while switching at Green Bay, WI on 11-02-86. The GB & W was merged into Wisconsin Central which was taken over by Canadian National.

SWEEEEEEEEEET!!!! Oh to have been old enough to remember the ALCOS! *Sigh*
Those old Alco's really knew how to lay out the smoke when starting to work.
Kinda miss them and their special sound. Santa Fe had a bunch of Fairbanks-Morse swtchers but don't remember them smoking like the Alcos.
Great shot....old school is sweet
