    Hi everyone. Thanksgiving is just around the corner (or a lovely day of over-stuffing one's self). Here's the selections.

    Thanks Bill. Something new and something old. You never know what you are going to run across.

    Were the yellow safety stripes along the sill a UP add-on? I never bothered to think about it previously, but can't think of when they appeared on SP/SSW power.

    Yeah, UP added that. This is how those GP-60s looked like before the addition of the yellow stripe. http://www.trainboard.com/railimages/data/2527/9647.jpg

    I wonder if those stripes could be Photoshopped away? Ha ha.

    Funny. I know exactly where those cars are. Been sitting on that siding for years. If you look closely, they have "scrap" painted on the side

    I almost did get a selfie, didn’t I.

    They have been round there for a good while. I’d forgot that

    BILL thanks for choosing of mine
