Seaboard System C30-7 7013, and an ex-L&N U30C, provide rear end assistance to a southbound Electric Fuels unit coal train on ex-L&N trackage at Roaring Branch. This line was unused after 1986, an... (more)
Northbound empties wait for permission to go on into Corbin Yard. Yeah, Yeah I kinow it's CSX but nobody got around to lettering these so I'll go with my preference.
This paint job even looked good on buttheads.
Two trains wait to get into the yard by the common but odd procedure of running up the on SAL main to the north end of the yard and backing into the receiving yard.

So good to see some of these oldsters repainted. At some point the railroad had shortened the steam generator compartment to allow a little more walkway space at the far end. Built for SAL, went... (more)
Originally SCL, this model was somewhat overshadowed by the more numerouse U36Bs.
Sounding more like a overgrown tractor than most GEs, these were always neat to find. Looks like the hostler is moving her to the ready track in the "field".
