Short Fast photo edit
Posted by SSW9389 on Friday, February 22, 2019 5:33 AM

The photo on page 33 March 2019 Trains used to illustrate Dan Machalaba's "Past Prime" shows a short fast intermodal train. The U boat is identified as a U25B, which it is not. That train is led by a 6,000 horsepower consist of a GP40 PC 3109 and a U30B PC 2842. That's plenty of power for the 15 cars trailing behind.
