With a thunderstorm about to arrive CSX 7577 leads
its train into Pensacola.
The eastbound Sunset Limited makes a station stop at Pensacola.
This is the after picture. See 262419. Turntable failed and the good old railroad ingenuity kicked in. It's not an armstrong table but a "forklift strong" turntable.
The before shot. This gentleman was kind enough to spot units for me several times. Today he's started turned this ex-SLSF unit on the turntable.
The later version of this model. Having grown up around N&W & Sou I kind of always wished someone would and a cab and keep the nose.
The cabless end of the earlier version of these things.
The "far east" was always good for an oddity, always a 4-axle, like this ex-CB&Q oldster.
I think there were only two on these both on BN and actually "decabbed" not built as such.
At the furthest extent of the far-flung BN network these units are local power. This is now a shortline operation.
Ex L&N unit. I've always wondered why this particular unit seemed to need a louver where none other had one.
A peek into the Alabama Gulf Railroad yard in Pensacola, Florida. That first unit looks as if it may just roll off the tracks. Probably an illusion applified by the telephoto lens.
K992 pushes back into the south end of Goulding Yard in Pensacola with SD70MAC CSXT 4711.
East bound Sunset Limited about to cross Escambia Bay on the John T. Collinson bridge.
Train of the day heads east for the River...
