Back when liquidation seemed unthinkable.
The early version of the great -2 on a great railroad. Remember the ACI label?
Nice example of one of the GP-18s built on trucks from trade in Alcos.
Great paint scheme.
In a wierd 3500-3600 number series these units were the first Family Lines units delivered.
Really new and looking nice.
Was that really 29 years ago. Impossible!
Departing EB train.
Headed west for another load of Fords.
Resurrected to haul the top of the line train this old F is a proud representative of a fine railroad. Amazing they kept the old single bell horns all those years.
A faded beauty, this classic has dynamic brakes, winterization hatch and the distinctive single bulb steam style headlight.
Undoubtedly the best options package for an Alco is WP's tall stack and number boards. This old goat is out to pasture with the rest of the Alcos.
Rebuilt GP-7, nice and fresh.
I've always wondered why FL had a few of these in the 4000s then changed to 4200s. Plan of the week?
Circa April 1984. These were so common as to be boring in those days.
This is the front end of this late model ex-PRR GP-9. FTs may have killed the steamer but these put the nails in the coffin.
