Full Throttle!! by DDL-Photography Full Throttle!! by DDL-Photography
June 16, 2012

Two EMD GP38-2's howl out of CP's Pigs Eye Yard in Saint Paul, MN pulling a mixed freight train heading north. The lead locomotive once had red and white paint with Soo Line lettering, but now wears a fresh coat of CP red while her sister and class locomotive still wears her original livery....for now.

Yes!! I hope the stick around for a while and not replaced by something more bland and modern.

Indeed. We have quite a few ex-Seaboard searchlights around here, still in service. :)

Me too! They are so much more fun to watch than the color light signals...though any signal is better than no signal at all. :XD:

Yes...Some of my best memories were sitting trackside (before scanners and portable laptops)and just waiting for that old signal to turn green and the adrenalin rush when it did!

That is EXACTLY what I still do today. Something about the feeling at night intensifies it...[link] It's all in the description! <3
