Nice colourful westbound, back in the days of endless CP leasing. One of the very last SD40-2s built for US railroads is this 6619, from a series 6618-6623, built in 1984. Note lack of dynamics. Trailing units are GATX 902 (former MP SD40-2) and Conrail SD40 6304. This sheltered mini-hillside not far from Campbellville Pond was a nice place to hang out back then, mostly free from bugs as well as a great place to watch westbound trains struggle on the grade thru here.

  1. Great shot Arnold. Everyone has a favorite spot to shoot.

  2. Ya know, so did I. Greg McDonnell’s Locomotive book. I was reading, saw the photo, and recognized it right away, even though I had shot my version 22 years ago and I cannot remember what I did yesterday. :o ) I thought it looked nice enough to post.

  3. I remember seeing this EXACT train in a book at Orr’s Lake Hill, nice shot!
