    No, this is no Aprils Fools.

    I just found about this fellow who is 20 years old and went out and bought his own F40PH locomotive.

    Here is a link to some of the discussion about this over at the Forum.;action=display;num=1043457546

    Here is link to the web page that he created that talks about the locomotive.

    I think that this is very cool and exciting. I am glad to see that someone has the initiative and resources to do something like this. The F40PH may not have been the best locomotive ever but it does have a place in railroad history and

    Personally, I'd have to have an F7 in Great Northern Big Sky Blue. Or an F45 in the same scheme...
    OTOH, I'd like an NP F7 in the 2-tone Lowey greens, A-la North Coast Limited...
    Or SP&S 700...
    OK, I'm done... Really!:p :eek:
