Hey, where did you get the sunshine???
also hoping you don't use those tracks in the foreground too often, Mark....
Last Sunday Ken. It clouded up later that evening.
Old roundhouse tracks. When there used to be an actual brick roundhouse here.
Thanks Ed. Just wish I could have got a better side shot.
Watco can put a color collection togather. What's the red and silver scheme back in the middle?
Thanks Jeff and Pat.
Pat- It was formerly assigned to the Austin Western RR (AWRR). I think they were going for a Burlington paint scheme when they chose that color.
I was in Wichita last summer and got a look at the Watco/Wamx power collection there. BAR GP38's, UP GP50's, BNSF SD40-2's. Even a old Conrail patch job with the PC logo coming through. Cool stuff.
Wow, that 4011 is a beauty. With a bell up front no less. Nice photo.
Thanks Bill. It is an ex-CN GP40-2LW.
