In the early 1990s, this train ran with a pair of B30-7s perhaps 90-95% of the time, but anything could show up, as on this day when two U18Bs - one all bright, and one all stealthy - were a pleas... (more)

Two C30-7s lead a Department of Defense train through Loachapoka. Use of autoracks sure changed the appearance of these trains, which for many prior years had relied predominantly on open flats.

The glory days are over for high-horsepower B-Bs, but 5852 still looks pretty capable rounding the curve at Loachapoka at 50+ mph.

The 6,000 horsepower GEs were not exactly a smash, but 642 looks like a star racing intermodal down the hill at Loachapoka. This is the former Western Railway of Alabama, a road that never had a ... (more)

SP/UP power was common on 615 at the time of this photo, but an SD45T-2 - even as ragged as this one - had become something of a prize catch.
