584 had just pulled up clear of the main road through town, cut off 2 cars from the train of grain hoppers and are now bringing those cars to the east end of the elevators for spotting. All loads will be shoved to the west end of the elevator track and empties then spotted where needed. The loads will be an easy grab when they return home the next day. The less than perfect sun works well with the black paint, details are easily seen. For myself, the standard cab GP38's looked their best when wearing the noodle scheme. Photo taken at 11:00.

    In Mikes picture, the 4712 has a conduit??? running up between the front windows and into the overhang for the number boards.
