A photo for those that model the GMD-1 on their layout. Bill Thomson just posted the 1422 from 1990 (formerly the 1076). Looking very fresh from its rebuild. Here it is again in 1988. This is one of the very few roster shots I made of GMD-1's, in this case, I took a photo of the 1076 because of the well weathered appearance. The obvious changes are, paint job, trucks, stacks, fuel tank as well as many others that are less obvious. The one that puts a grin on my face is the rerailer has been moved forward and hung with the narrow end now facing to the front. For better streamlining no doubt :-). This photo shows the grain extra heading home with the 1076, 1073 and 1070 for power. Photo taken at the Mile 23.80 grade crossing, date is middle of April with the time 11:00 approx.
The exhaust stacks and the script used for the numberboards really ups the "wow factor" for these engines. I certainly do miss them.
