We finished work on BNSF's Hastings Sub and traveled onto the Ravenna Sub to start work Monday

Traveled thru Bradshaw, NE and saw these 2 beauties!

Looks like a trip to Bradshaw is in order. My brother got some great sound recordings of the ALco a few years back. Thanks for the pics.

Got some more, (hopefully better) pics of the two units at Tamora, NE

Looks like the front end damage on the Geep was caused by going through the rail stops

Still has its original small tank

Saw this unit at an ethanol plant outside of Ravenna, NE; thought I would be able to get a better pic later but we went onto the Sandhills Sub and didn't come back by it.
