EMD on the FEC

Post by Noel Weaver » Wed Apr 26, 2017 5:51 pm

For those of you who like GP-40's and SD-40's (dash twos), best bets to see them are on 336 and 335 the unit trains of rock and 109 and 210 which leave during the middle of the night but see daylight toward their destinations. Here is a video of 210 going through Melbourne this morning (Wednesday). I think he has a winner here.

Here is another video of SD-40-2's in action, this time on 218, NB. Two engines that were in good shape when the UP cast them aside some years ago still doing what they were built to do. One of EMD's best products ever.

Yesterday (Saturday) train 101 had a pair of 700's, if you thank they can't move freight with them, just look at this video.

Not bad for a couple of old locomotives that the UP set aside several years ago. They even look good too.
