These were getting rather long in the tooth by the time we captured the great lines in this broadside.
Still painted in the old scheme this F leads a westbound in the old scheme.
I like Canadian National. There were so many variations among the types. In those days the individuality of units reminded me of Southern in steam days.
My candidate for the best Bicen scheme. The blue seemed to fade or perhaps was a little light.
This westbound pig train is coming down "the short way" and appears to be coming thru a drilling rig. This rig drilled a vertical hole deep into the earth and measured shifts in the fault line us... (more)
