I never get tired of looking at GP9s.
I have seen 81 at Strasburg. Here is 82 and 84. What happened to 83?
Randy Miller comments on the above:
The 83 went to
the Stewartstown RR and has since been moved to Jim
Thorpe, PA. The gray
boxcar is an old WM car. If you look at it right you
can see the full WM
lettering. I have the number written down somewhere
and I'll give it to you when I find
it. I think it was in the 27000 series. The MPA
boxcar on the ground was a
Pullman Standard car. If anything the Emons shop
might have made it into a 50'
from a 40'. Take a good look at the MPA boxcar. They used the wrong stencil on it when they repainted it back in the 80's. They used a rib side stencil instead of a smooth side one. This give the star a few extra points on it. Both cars in the series, the 300 and the 301 were painted like this.
And Lincoln Yard has always been called
Lincoln Yard. In fact,
Emons had a sign up that said Lincoln Yard on it and
G&W still refers to it as
Thanks to Randy!
