The bare April trees really help show the exhaust scintillation of the GMD-1's. The 1069 and 1076 are working to get 35 empty grain hoppers and 2 box cars under way from Kerensky. The tailend brakeman who, just moments ago, lined the south connecting track switch back to normal. Their end destination will be Lindbergh. To return tomorrow at approx. the same time (just before lunch) with 22 loads of grain.

  1. To Arnold:
    30 years and counting. I had a ton of fun shooting my slides back then. On the other hand, I’ve had one terrific summer out taking photos this year. Damn I like trains. Thanks for your super comment. :-)
    To Todd:
    For myself, this has been a favourite. There is no mistaking that on both units all 12 cylinders are breathing hard as they get those hoppers underway.
    Your generous comment is very appreciated. :-)

  2. I don’t know what it is….whether it’s partially backlit…or the exhaust….or just that these old Dawgs are workhorses to say the least….but this is a great photo! :)

  3. More than 30 years ago already. My gawd. Very nice image of some nice old power.
