Tom Fassett General I just got a similar "current" shot over the weekend with ex SP SD40M-2s and UP SD40-2s. 9/18/2008 8:48:23 PM
Steve Evers General You can all mourn the loss of the SP, but I will not miss their greasy, grimy, unwashed, paint burned off the flanks power ! 11/23/2008 6:41:38 PM
Southern Railroad General The Grease and Grime made the SP what it was... Nothing better than a very dirty SD45T-2 on the point in my mind... 12/23/2008 7:13:53 PM
Tom Fassett General Makes it a challenge to model the SP but I enjoy "griming" up my models... ;- ) 1/2/2009 5:58:15 PM
