      How about this CN classic. EMD SW1200RS. This shot was taken at the car ferry near Windsor, I believe. Anyway now they expanded the Detroit River tunnel this activity is no more



      I often saw this unique custom by corrosion paint scheme around Toronto in the eighties. Don't know what happened and why they never painted it.

        Hey Chris, It looks like that little puppy just came out of the oven! You know...if a modeller weathered a diesel like that, eyebrows around the room would be furled! :erm:

          Both the B&M and Maine Central utilized E-units on their passenger trains between Boston and Rigby Yard in Portland. Here we see Maine Central E-unit #705 in care of "The Pine Tree Ltd." about to cross the New England River at the outbound end of Marshall Cut.



          This particular locomotive belongs to my good friend, David Haney, who hails from Massachusetts and now resides in Ottawa. Dave is yet to build a large layout, so his diesel unit has plied my rails for a few years now. Gee Dave, are ya ever gonna get that pike started? :erm: :erm:



          The signal is now green and the train begins to cross the New England River. Who says green locomotives get lost in the green scenery?!

              Here is a classic EMD E8. Built in 1951 for the Erie, it is back in its original paint scheme after a spending some time in Conrail blue. I caught it sitting on the old Erie turntable up in Port Jervis, NY. (BTW, that is a 1945 Jeep sitting in front of it.)

                  The GP-9 is one of my favorite early EMD diesels, and the NY&GL 1268 is still beautiful at age 50. She was built by EMD in 1957 for the Northern Pacific Railway. I caught up with her in Port Jervis, NY last weekend.







                  Somewhat like the Seaboard's old "Route of Courteous Service" motto, the NY&GL calls itself the "Friendly Service Route"
