    ...happens early in the morning for espee #2574, an SW1500. Here she is shown switching General Foods Corporation, which requires many boxcar loads of packing material a day to keep in smooth operation. They also load dozens of insulated boxcars full of canned goods a week, which makes this a labor-intensive job for the Midland Local's crew.

    Les is right: the light has that "start of the day" quality. It also looks good coming through those factory windows. Nice models, too. Is this HO scale?

    Miles-nice photo. Do you have any other pics of that area of your layout? It appears to be a rather busy industrial area which is right up my alley. In any case, nice work!

    babydot- I know, it is, but I didn't have the heart to weather this loco, plus I found at least 10 shots of 'clean' SW1500's on So I chose that way to go, however, my other SP engines, wont.
