Remarks & Notes 
As the GB&W struggled through the 80's the once perfectly maintained Alcos started to show a noticeable lack of the fine exterior finish they had been noted for. A number of them took on a more pinkish look. This shot has 316 leading 311 and 39 cars on train 2 as it nears a crew change and the CNW crossing at Merrillian on a hazy June morning.

The front of the train is dark. This is just what makes the picture so good.
