Remarks & Notes 
The incredible 10,000 hp GM10B is awaiting a crew to take it west in the spring of 1978. This 197-ton, 73'-4" long giant rode on B-B-B trucks with 50" drivers. Never duplicated, it was scrapped by EMD in the mid 1980s, shortly after Conrail pulled the plug on its electrified freight lines.

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