I have never (to my knowledge) seen the white snowplow before. Only the black/orange one. Where has the white one been all these years?

I hope if #111 is being retired (which I understand you are just speculating at this point) that it is not scrapped. My favorite of their diesel engines, perhaps because it is the one I chased more than the others.

That engine house can only hold so much. Two steam engines (though only 1 tender total), and three diesel engines is a lot to stuff in there.

I caught the B&P and the A&A working side by side at Arcade Junction in December:

Very nice... what a stroke of luck. I have never been there when B&P switched Arcade Junction.

Pics from a snowy NYE. New engine and #112 doubleheaded to North Java. At the new Prestolite siding, they split up. #112 pulled while the new engine pushed the 9 empties to Arcade Junction:

#112 and the new loco doublehead to the North Java feed mill on Jan. 22.

The B&P had dropped off 20 cars this week for the A&A!

It was 7 degrees when I took these pics so my camera did not take the best pics:

Wonder how long it will be before the FRA "reminds" them that all locomotives must display a number on each side, and the letter "F" to designate which end is front.

Is all this doubleheading lately really necessary or are they just playing with the toys?
