Daniel Duggan General Great Grafton shot! A couple of notes: the 7577 is C&O, nee 7477. The C&O with the white background number boards is 7425, an SD35 rebuilt by EMD after a wreck shortly following its delivery. Note the raised dust bin, typical of later SD35 units. Also, note the older style center radiator fan on the SD50 at left. Dan Duggan 4/21/2008 1:01:55 PM
Daniel Duggan General I meant to add in the previous note that the 7425 is not 7475, a C&O SD40 of the same vintage as the 7577. The 7475 was renumbered 7575 around 1975. 4/21/2008 1:04:46 PM
Eric Mcclain General I wish Grafton still looked like this...I hardly ever got to sree any Chessie being only 14 now..I wish it was still around but its not. Glad you took this picture! 7/31/2008 12:33:06 AM
