Bunge was shutdown for maintenance work for a couple of weeks earlier this month, and Blue Thunder (as the guys who run it call it) was moved from its usual resting spot for two weeks, where it sat wide open as pictured in nice afternoon sun for the duration. The maintenance has since been completed, and they were back to running canola last night.

  1. @awmooney I have a model of a’South Carolina Central’ G&W unit I broke the bank for. And I was looking to modeling a GATX Geep.. After this thread maybe i’ll do a re-think. @Stephen C. Host yes they have the GATX unit on the OBRY, Wish it was the RS18u they use Welland way. If so..I wouldn’t have moved out of Mississauga! ;) Speaking of blue..in my early model railroading years, my first locomotive was a TYCO Conrail f unit! Time to throw on some Muddy Waters or similar Blue’s tune. ;)

  2. GMTX is getting into everything. Shortlines are ridding themselves of 1′st gen power and going 2′nd gen using GMTX. Funny I got A&O paint my last trip there in ’18 – went by the shops in Buckhannon WV and saw GMTX – pass.

    Albany Port RR – GMTX – used to have two beautifully painted units, one SW8 and SW1200 each. Now GMTX (bleah)

    Trillium (bleah)

    VIP Rail Sarnia (bleah!)

    CN (Bleah! but i’ll still flick it if this era ever ends it’ll define it)

    SOR had those CIT sky blue junkers…

    I’m with you arnold, in fact, friends of mine know how much I hate them too :)

  3. A couple of the guys on this site know how I LOATHED blue GATX when they were on the D&H some years ago. I would get all hyped up hoping for CP MLWs and along would come a string of these (bleepin) GATX and I was sick of them. Now, since I have not seen them in years, they do not haunt me as much, but they still do to some extent. As in when I go to some obscure railroad hoping for some “new” discovery, only to find, as in the A&O (Appalachian & Ohio) a string of those blue GATX instead of some old relics I expected.
    Same goes for Orange on GEXR. It is disappointing to go as far as, say, Utah; and whaddia see? Same stuff. Different reporting marks. G-r-r-r. Getting grumpy. :o )

  4. Haha, thanks Arnold. I meant to make a joke in the caption about it being yet another shot of a blue unit, however of a much different variety, but evidently forgot. :)

  5. Funny @awmooney there was a man and his son at Bartlett..yes waiting for CMQ and the little guy kept asking for GATX units!!! “no…those are one the CN….” More blue…;)

  6. Love this, as all critters; but I have seen enough ‘baby blue’ on this site to last me a few days. :o ) We have all O.D.’d on CMQ. Nice change.
    You sure find your way around the Industrial areas of Hambone. Keep at it for us lazy people will you? Appreciated, I am sure, by many.:o)
