I'm told this is the only operating SD7.
Gee, we hardly ever see one of these! Yeah, right.
From ACL to SCL to SBD this unit has lately been reduced to yard service but this got it a fresh paint job. You can still smell the Imron.
Sadly only a single unit greeted us at what used to be a great B&O location. This one began its career on L&N and was later a Seaboard System unit.
This was a good catch when they came out with their deucedly clever new "image". I guess my memory must have failed me but I thought I saw this in Clifton Forge in 1970.
After years of watching these things on every UP train on Cajon Pass I can hardly believe I am glad to see them getting a new lease on life.
ACL only bought one SDP and this was it. It became SCL, then L&N, then SBD and wound up switching the yard in the coal country. How I would love to see a shot of this one in the glory days, hand... (more)
From Monon, to L&N, to SBD to the wilds of rural New York for another owner filling in on the D&H.
Originally L&N and then SBD, this unit is sitting around waiting for work on this occasion. NIghtfall will probably find it shuffling cars for many of the local heavy industries.
Another "facelift" unit has invaded the area once reserved for interesting stuff.
I am a wiser man than I was when the F-units and GP9s were everywhere, so repeat after me children, so you never forget, "Someday we will wish we still had these around."
