I think we need to check with the ref here, but I don't think SW1500 = SW1200...
In the meantime, here's CN SW1200RM 7317 switching at Walkerville, ON.
Doh! I thought it looked like an MP15, but I wasn't careful looking at the L&N roster.... up to 5029 were SW1500s. 5030-5039 were MP15s.
That's what I get for trying to double-check my instincts!
I didn't see your post until after I posted it, figured I wouldn't mind seeing something different too.:mrgreen:
B&O 4807 at TH&B's Stuart Street terminal, in Hamilton, Ontario.
B&O 3752 approching Porter tower in Chesterton IN.
Ok, I'll ante up. I'm in! :mrgreen:
No Western Pacific yet after 7 pages?!
I'll fix THAT!
WP 3533 @ Stockton, CA getting ready to head West to Oakland some time in the early 1970's (1973??)
I'll bet dollars to donuts that this thread sets a record with the number of replies here on the Gauge!
Someone likened this thread to the card game "Uno". I couldn't agree more!
Much fun, much fun...
um, Tom, you missed the WP hopper i posted:toug::mrgreen: .
Oops, my bad... Sorry dude! I know I saw it because I *thought* I had a model of that particular car. I will go put myself in the corner now. :mrgreen:
Little dude on the left side of the picture is me, taken with my dad and our crew on a special "Family Days" trip at Stockton in 1983. I actually got to run that train that day for a bit, thanks Jim!
that was you in '83? i thought you was about my age i graduated in "83:winki: .
sorry not a proto pic, but it was the quickest WP pic i could find
Nope, I graduated in '93. (just turned 33). I feel 53 though, 15 years railroading has screwed my ankles, knees and lower back all up though to the point I sound like a bowl of rice krispies when I get out of bed. Takes me 15 minutes to reach the coffee maker and the shower.)
I've got nothing in the way of WP, and not much in the way of plugdoor cars, either - at least this is a boxcar with double (almost) doors:
I've got a (former) boxcar...
I can do CN:
CN eh !!! I think I have a few to contribute
How about an Ex CN unit?
