Bit late on this because I just noticed the thread.
I was in the US Navy late 60's/early 70's. Was at Pearl Harbor on a tugboat, and then on the USS Constellation. A lot of good times with a bunch of great guys.

Last duty station was Fort Dix. I was the post Ammunition Officer. Middays with ammo handed out and nothing else to do until the unused rounds came back, would go down to the railyard and watch GE 44-tonner PRR #9999 go about its work for the PRR-owned shortline which I think was called the Union Transportation Company, but somebody correct me if the name's not right! Seemed like such a big number for such a little locomotive!
Thanx to all my fellow vets for your work and sacrifices.
