An SP Cadillac, actually, an EMD SD7 noted by the crews for being very comfortable hence the name. She is seen in the yard at Benson Arkansas. I like the proportions of these low powered but useful locomotives, they have the feel of a steam engine to my mind. I think it’s the long hood reminiscent of a boiler.

A Kodachrome 2000hp EMD GP38-2 in the bright merger colours that never happened. The merger being between the Santa Fe and Southern Pacific, some locos were painted with the SPSF some suggested this meant shouldn’t paint so fast. Several hundred locos from both companies were painted in fact.

I like the photo and but that spring  holding the bogie down

Yes, not how I'd do it, if I was building the chassis myself.

 

Perhaps this makes it a little less obvious?

A bird’s eye view of the East yard at Benson showing a Burlington & Northern end cab yard switcher still wearing its original Great Northern paint job. She is pushing a cut of empty pulp wood cars into the loading siding, where the pulp wood is loaded directly from trucks. The loaded cars are then taken south on the Rock Island line to a large mill in Louisiana were the lumber is pulped for making board or paper.

A bit of a painting experiment!

 

Which appears to have turned out rather well.

Gardens in N.  I wonder how Mr 34 Belgrave Terrace, Croft Spa broke his leg?

Mrs 32 Belgrave Terrace has a goat for a lawn mower.  I must get round to making a tether for it so it doesn't escape.
