    Got a whole bunch of my old stuff scanned this week. There's CN/GTW, Detroit and Mackinac/Lake State and standard and narrow gauge steam. It was hard to choose what I wanted to kick off with, but finally decided to start with this shot of Huckleberry RR #2 (ex Alaska RR 152) featured in a night photo session. I don't know about today, but back in the 90s, the shop tour and the night photo session at the water tank were the highlights of the annual railfans' weekend on the Huckleberry.

    A fireless steam streamliner? o_O

    Hydro-Quebec 12-012, Plymouth 15-ton gasoline-electric built in February 1928 for Gatineau Power (north of Ottawa) and passed on to Hydro-Quebec when all of the province's private electrical grids were nationalized in the 1960s:

    Behind it, Intercolonial Railway 531, wood colonist car built in December 1910. Intercolonial was one of the predecessors of Canadian National.

    At the lower left, this is what happens when you take a picnic table, a speeder, and let loose some guys from Possum Lodge...:D

    This piece was displayed by Heisler at the 1940 New York World's Fair. According to the Railroad Museum's website, it is the only 0-8-0 fireless ever built. Pennsylvania Power & Light used it until 1969.

    The 3 Jun 21 Empire Builder, led by heritage unit 130, glides deep into Gassman Coulee after dusk near MP 7 BNSF Glasgow Sub. Photo from private property with permission.
    A good friend I used to chase with came in on this train--it was almost an hour late, so the prime shot would have been much better, but alas...

    That's not a daytime shot, but for a late dusk shot, it's pretty nice! The roofs of the passenger cars and engines reflect the sky and you have the headlights of AMTK 130 lighting up the hoppers next to it with a nice warm glow. Plus the slim reflections off the rails in the background.

    Cool!:cool:

    So, Friday evening, I was dropping an empty trailer at the Del Monte warehouse in Lathrop, Ca and I found this. I think this is the newest freight car I have ever seen. Brand new out of the box, no weathering, no graffiti and not a scratch on it. Build date is 4-21.

    Interesting how high the reporting marks are, I suppose to try and remain above the eventual graffiti.

    Someone on a FB group replied, "Wait until it gets to LA". Yeah, sad to say, it won't stay pristine for long. I'm suprised it made it this long. Where it sits when I saw it, is in a guarded area. Some of the companies have better security that the postal facilities that I used to go to!
