Everything is AOK
Title:  Everything is AOK
Description:  Arkansas-Oklahoma GP30u 2443 sits in McAlester, OK waiting for its next assignment. Parked near the AOK crew building and just off the AOK/UP Diamond in town. Unit was originally built in 1963 for the ATSF as 2743. Later became BNSF 2443 and LTEX 2443 when BNSF sold it. Now with a new coat of paint this little GP30u has new life and avoids the scrapper for now.
