Great Northern is another railroad which operated its first generation road switchers long end forward. Here are some GP7's.

Plase show more first generation road switchers. ( For example  EMD GP7's and GP9's or Alco RS3's.)

Here's GLC's GP7 taking a break.  This loco is currently "retired", and waiting for it's shell to be placed on a PRK GP7 frame and drive. 

I love these old GP's.

Lets some more!

Great looking diesels everyone!  I especially enjoy weathered, rusty looking ones.

Mr. Pullman, great looking roundhouse scene.  I like the overhead gantry.  Need to add that to my roundhouse.

Here's the only diesel locomotive to be found on my steam-dominated railroad:

An Alco S-1 switcher, sent over by the Main Office to the Dutchtown & Geismar Division for evaluation.  I overheard a few of the older Hoggers say that they don't like "dem new-fangeled diesels".  

"Shovel all the coal in, gotta keep 'em rolling...."

Lets's see more switchers, diesel or steam.

None of them there Diseasaly thingies on the SLOW! 

Old # 135 works a long string of cars at the yard lead switching Hopewell Yard on the SLOW back in 1925 (August 15, at 2 in the afternoon....).
