Brand new GP50 3113 sits at Stacy St Yard in Seattle, Wa waiting to take a train East. The units were maintenance headaches for ther BN. They had a failure rate nearly three times that of BN's SD40-2 fleet. The CMO called them the "Edsel" of the locomotive market.
This is the Dec 12th 2002 Derail in Seattle WA on the Stacy yard track. The morning was all it took to straighten this one out.
