Isn't the wheel on the left kitty-wampus or is that more camera artifact?
I have some of these.
MIne are EMD, not GE or ALCO like yours.
This wheel illustrates why we have to change wheels from time to time.
They sure got all the good out that set of wheels.
Yup. Kind of like the wonky hotel in another photo I posted recently.
This came off the RSD15 in the background.
Its a group of private owners and individuals who have organized a fledgling non-profit group dedicated to the preservation of the passenger train. The group recently took ownership of the local Milwaukee Road depot and moved it to their property for use as the museum HQ.

How about putting traction tires on it?
Yikes. That is more than just a bit ugly! Do you have facilities to rebuild such? Or must you contract these out...?
October 1977 at Knoxville, TN, #1329, a former Monon C-420.
It will need to be shipped to our wheel vendor. These will need to be changed, I think I have good axles....
That won't fix the nasty flange.

About $20 million bucks and a lot of time, you'd have a nice passenger train with all those cars!!

A photo of our old car the Verde Valley taken by John McCall. It looks like it may be in a chartered excursion train that Santa Fe ran for various folks. Can't make out what it says on the drumhead. We sold the car to the museum in Chandler, Arizona where it is now being restored. Check out the wreck on the right.
It looks like the NRHS logo on that drumhead.
