I pulled out the checkbook looked at the balance then figured out what the DIVORCE ATTY would cost me.  Sorry I would rather snuggle up next to my wifeEvil [}:)] than a SD-45.  Besides y wife is hotter than a SD-45.Oops [oops]

If I bought the locomotives, then I'd have to have cars to go with them, and then I'd need tracks to put them on, a mainline to run them on, and people to work for me running them. Gee, it'd be just like, WORK!

Just runnning is a lot more fun and they pay me to do it...

Some of those C36-7 from BCRail arrived in Brazil two months ago. Others can arrive here soon. I hope de SD45 and the SD40.

Fine when your wife lets you stay at home all day and raise the kids while she goes out and makes the money to pay the bills then comes home and wants to cuddle up all night long.  By the way my wife has Jessica Simpsons upper half and has Stacey Kebblers legs.   Plus she is as smart as any PHD there is so I hit the JACKPOT.  Besides what would you rather come home to a SD-45 or a hot body that loves to cuddle and makes sure you know feel special.

Unless the SD45 purchase is for installation in a Museum or for a Private Branchline, you might as well stick with O Scale and G Gauge Models.

Take it where? A serious question from one who owns locomotives...

You need someplace to put it before you decide to buy that 250 ton lawn ornament...

They must be selling all the engines in the deadline at Homewood. There is quite a variety of GEs in the southeastern part of the yard, plus there is a line of SD45s in another deadline.

I am thinking 6071 will be on CN for a long time. Hopefully CN doesn't repaint it due to historical reasons. I just saw 6071 less then a month ago and it is looking pretty good! Hopefully a museum like IRM would be interested in a B23-7. IRM also doesn't have a SD45so you never know.Hopefully, when 6071 is retired (which won't be happening anytime soon! Smile [:)]) IRM could get ahold of it as they do already have the former demo SD7 (SP 1518) and the first GP7 (CNW 1518, funny how they happen to have the same number!)

Hey Traveler, you going to replace Agnes with it? Just remember, you let Bruce get his hands on reliable, everyday power, and he is going to start getting ideas!

 Will NOT let BAB get even close to it . Had a conversation w/Mr. D. (the CN loco guy) and they do know the 6071's historical value and when the time comes retire it a good home is of the highest priority . The first time I saw the GM&O 950 was up in Meridian,Ms , had to be 1975 or 76 , and it made a great impression on me . It may have looked as good or maybe a little better than the "Tuxedo" engines I was runnin' . DPH

Then there is a chance of it going to IRM. That would be a great home for it, considering it has old IC coaches. As long as it gets saved, that would be great! It was on display at Homewood Rail Heritage Day 2006 (by request of the village of Homewood since they also know its historical status) and it looked great!

Have you ever "had" a locomotive. Different than sex, that's for sure, but it has it's moments.
