    The CP Holiday Train came by Beaconsfield this week. Didn't go because day after was a work day, but the local media did some great video coverage:



    Nice!

    Interesting that both GE and GM would use similar colors for their demo units. They were such fierce competitors.

    I caught the Conrail heritage unit leading NS 38G eastbound heading for Wyomissing JCT on former CR, originally Reading Co. trackage today. It was a relatively balmy 52 degrees for December in these parts.

    I never suspected I would miss seeing 'Big Blue." Nice catch!

    Wow, really nice capture there @Sepp K . (y) The CR is the only NS Heritage Unit I've not yet seen.

    Speaking of Tilford, do you recognize this roundhouse @BNSF FAN ? I took this on 04/11/1984 in Atlanta at an SBD/CSX facility, but I didn't record exactly where.

    1984-04-11 001 Atlanta GA - for upload.jpg

    I think I took this picture at the same location if that helps. Not much here to help identify though.

    That roundhouse sure looks like the old Tilford roundhouse that was torn down sometime in the 90's. Can't say for sure though because that other location doesn't look familiar but that area changed a lot
