    The A&M is no longer going to be All ALCO

    Well I contacted a friend of mine who works there and he said the employees were under the impression they were getting GE's. It's a wait and see thing now. Greg

    Location help

    My wife and I were on vacation driving west on Highway 30 out of Portland Oregon and I stopped to grab this shot of the P&W ex-KCS SD40-2. Any of you PNW rail fans recognize the location? I didn't keep any notes on my pictures this trip, lesson learned. :D

    Ah, thanks. I know some web pages don't mind links but not direct posting from their site. Greg

    Gee, you'd think they'd go for Gevo's before SD70ACe's. :D Greg

    What is the "Red Zone"???

    Jeff, oh how right you are. UP doesn't want hand signals for the red zone but radio only, then the weed weasels can do their testing and not be physically present. Greg

    Speed Limit across UT salt flats

    That's not to say they weren't running a little hot either. :D Last time I worked out there was 1991 and I don't recall where or how much seperation between I-80 and tracks.

    Pre-Amtrak days, late 1960's maybe.

    GP9rm measurements

    Mainline Modeler had drawings of GP7's, GP9's and GP18's that were very well drawn. IIRC they were in the mid 1980's or early 1990's issues. Greg
