I was wondering if someone could give me their best guess on what railroad this came from and possibly an age. I have 2 on my property and I am not quite sure at this point what I am going to do with them.
A northbound M SEA-EVE 3 22 A with some old 1960s Ford cabover trucks with basket lifts on them that are in almost mint shape heading for Eola Il. someone said that they may have come down from Alaska?? and the end flat bed some kind of roller for Kimberly Clark plant in Everett Wa.
This is from sometime around 1972, and it looks to be taken at Riverview of all places! I found it as part of an old club roster at school. This seems to be running with an SD40, GP9, SW1200, and GMD-1...Consists musn't have been very uniform back then!
Every engine displayed here, was on and idling. It was a really cool sound. Here, IR 6 is attatched to IR 2, OSS 3757 is by itself, and HBRY 5008, 5009, and NKC 3 are ready to go to Eola, which won't happen for another 24+ hours...
A "local" which runs from the UP in Dalhart down BNSF's Dalhart Sub to pick up/set out cars in the old RI yard here in Amarillo and return to Dalhart. I like UP's choice of power for this train. the old Rock Island Bridge is now used as a storage track for UP.
This is my second photo as a Railfan.
In september 99, I've made a trip to the desert (Atacama, Chile) and I found in the middle of nowhere this station and this lonely boxcar.
The "Pampa" (flat place) its big, the sun strong, but this Boxcar refuses to die afther more than 40 years...
This is my very first photo as a Railfan.
In september 99, I've made a trip to the desert (Atacama, Chile) and I found in the middle of nowhere this station and this lonely boxcar, which it have been taking sun for more than 40 years.
Its a sad and hard dead, the dry weather didnt corrodes metal.
One can only guess how old this boxcar really is. The original paint dates prior to script, so 1940's? Hard to believe it's still roadworthy in 2008, even if it is used as a rolling shed.
How odd he looks next to a modern IMS double-stack. No such thing when he originally rolled the country...
