Following the trend of photo's recently posted here is another I hope you will find of interest. This is the 1272 waiting midmorning in the Boston Bar yard to continue it's way east. I checked at the time and found that it was based in the Vancouver area but did not no where it was headed to. It seems it eventually was sold into industrial application. Photo taken during a small sunny hole in otherwise thick grey clouds. Obviously in transport here with the stacks taped up. 2 SD40's up front for power. For me the Flexicoil trucks suited switchers so much better than under GP9's.
