Soo F units
Title:  Soo F units
Description:  In the classic scene from 1951, we see two Soo F3s that are about to head under Silver Lake Road. The first car is most likley going to be set out at New Brighton for the stock yards. This scene has changed dramatically over the last 58 years. All the fields are gone, the second main the train is on is gone, and the only things that still here are the telephone polls and the 1st mainline. Heres how it looks today http://wc_sd45_7500.rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=463983
