A pleasant afternoon at the “Funnel” sees a couple enjoying the shake, rattle and roll of a mixed merchandise train coming off the line from Waycross.
Trailing a piece of plastic on the front truck of the lead unit, a huge consist on motive power roars thru town.
Got a friend you think over-weathers his model Railroad stuff? Well maybe not! On UP when your number hits the high 9000s, your number is almost up.
Outlined by its replacement in the dying sunlight, this classic profile is without peer.
Featuring a deturbo’d rebuilt GP40, the engine terminal has a bunch of beauties. BTW, Thanks for the hospitality TRRA.
If you can get a good unit across town and save on shipping you take it. This one came from TRRA and looks pretty good.
Two hustling switchers are roaring back and forth at one of the huge kaolin plants here. They’ll wrap it up around noon. Most other places would be 6:00 PM.
Light power running east. This unit relettered for the upgrade to 4400 HP. Uncertain as to what the box with blue and yellow stickers on the running board is. I sure miss those CPLs.
No mistaking that former C&NW Schoolbell.
Sporting new paint a “retread” from BN leads a work train picking up old ties and other such detritus from the right of way.
Ain’t I cute. I got a new cab, a nose job and a pie job in South Georgia for the winter.
Did PRR and SOO ever serve the same terminal? I doubt it, but this shot reminds me of those great pictures at passenger terminals with a variety of colorful motive power.
Starting off the new Aiken Railroad was an ex-SP unit. That paint scheme looks much like the old Railtex paint job.
Looking good in the All-American company paint scheme this unit represents the height of the GP10 rebuild program. One the other end is apparently a earlier trail scheme.
