Whod have guessed??
Title:  Whod have guessed??
Description:  Another one of those "if I had said ten years ago..." shots. Who would have figured NYSW running new, high horsepower diesels, and in combination with CP power, yet?? Here it is on a 74 car MEBU rolling west at Hiawatha Rd. The power combinations would get even stranger by the end of the year.

Growing up
Title:  Growing up
Description:  Earlier this year, I shot BUOI here in a spring scene with the forsythia in bloom, and the green trees still short. Theyre getting bigger, now starting to obscure the train. In a couple of years, theyll make a photo here impossible. A GATX leader has what looks like is an 892 coal train. Note the PLM unit. It is in an SD45 carbody, and was one of the EMD test bed units for the 645 engine in the 1960's.
