Patriot rail LLc, Longview, has taken shipment and accepted two former Temple & Central Texas GP-38's today...They are a very nice looking pare...
they look alot larger than we are used to seeing with old gp-7's 9's &20's, and switchers...Not sure if these units will be used on the Landfill job, or stay working the Columbia & Cowlitz...Here are a couple pictures taken by a friend...Used with his permission...Shows the units sitting outside the Longview Engine house...Not sure when they will be put into service...
Thanks...

Nice work Gary. I saw these two the other day at Longview Jct. I only saw them from the side, had I seen the Nose, maybe I would have figured out why they where there. Keep us posted please. I really need to get down there and shoot again it's been awhile.
