BCQ 118
Posted by RailEagle on Friday, June 28, 2019 4:47 PM

Has anyone in the N. Texas area seen BCQ 118 recently? She is a GP7 that until recently worked a grain elevator in Harrold Tx. Unfortunately the elevator was demolished after a thunderstorm and I last heard she is sitting in a possibly abandoned stat. She is my favorite locomotive, ever since I saw her a couple of years ago on a road-trip when her paint job was fresh.

Thanks.

It has virtually a stock appearance except for the chopped nose.  It could turn up just about anywhere and a quick paint job would make it virtually invisible.

The daily commute is part of everyday life but I get two rides a day out of it. Paul
