The F units are originally SP/T&NO heritage but have been repainted for the Galveston, TX RR Museum to reflect that the museum is housed in the former GC&SF Southern Divison HQ...

    Signal Replacements on BNSF's Augusta, KS - Ft Worth, TX Line

    As I understand it any signals governing train movements that use moving parts to indicate signal aspect are required by the FRA to be removed from service and upgraded to modern standards. On the BNSF I have seen searchlight singanls loaded into gondola cars going to scrap.

    Atsf 315 & 316

    They are not the same ones. The F7's that were flooded were cut up for scrap along with the SP NW2. http://www.facebook.com/?sk=nf#!/media/set/?set=a.10150675835831405.444441.111240061404&type=3 http://www.facebook.com/?sk=nf#!/media/set/?set=a.10151103249841405.484986.111240061404&type=3...

    Burned and bummed

    Same here Nathan, that is why I'm not taking photos now. Even though I am all around and on them. Before long I will be taking my camera with me to work again. On a side note, next week I will be in central TX and should come back with something.

    Watco Calendar Contest

    Lee- Sorry for the confusion on my part. They want photos of their trains on any of their shortlines or photos from any of their switching locations. Photos from any of their transload, or car repair locations would probably be aceptable also. http://watcocompanies.com/

    I work for Watco's Timber Rock Railroad. June 12 I will be employed with them for 10 years. Previous to that I worked for a railroad switching contractor beginning in May of 1998. The pay is close to what other shortlines in the region pay. Depending on whether you work for one of their...
