    Fine picks this week, but I do have to register a complaint with badlandnp about his use of the four-letter S-word...o_O

    Cumbres & Toltec 489 is one sweet machine!

    Very nice work, everyone. Ken, I just read somewhere that the UP E's have not been out on the road for quite some time.

    When the E units run they aren't as big a deal as a steamer.
    I know they were used for the College Words Series in Omaha in June, 2015 and Cheyenne Frontier Days in July, 2015.

    The E's just seem to bring back a time when steam was king but was moving over for DE. Melancholy days .... thanks for posting 'em!
