Oldschool III by factorone33 Oldschool III by factorone33
The last of the three, and the most eye candy for everyone.

Ex-D&RGW GP60 #1901 and ex-SP GP60M #1509 head eastbound down the KP line towards Salina with a manifest in tow, on the Sharon Springs sub.

Never. You can't even try to arrange this unless you have big strings to pull. Somehow, I doubt this was planned.

There are only two ways this happened. By chance, or maybe the yardmaster is a railfan. :)

Yep. :#1:

You can't plan for that stuff. I wonder what the guys were thinkin' when the order to lash those two together came out from the yard office in Salina.

These units looks like they might be the "extras" that are just sitting around for rainy day yard work or MoW work. I wouldn't be suprised if these engines do work together all the time. Still.. it s a good find. Buffs in New Jersey would probably die if they saw this rolling along the Lehigh Line.

Yeah, now that you mention it, the last batch of MoW consists I've seen roll through all have had something really rare on hand. The tunnel motors and slack SD40s are usually the yard/local duty 'motives, and then I guess the extras laying around get to do the non-routine work. But every once in awhile I catch one doing some local switching.

Yeah this will most likely be the last action they will see before they go to the scrapper. Shame, but thats the way the railroad is. All the old ratty Conrail U-Boats where pressed into Yard and MoW service throughout the Northeast when they where on their deathbeds.

Actually, I've seen them running around the Salina area, and I think they're assigned to the Sharon Springs yard down the road from me. Judging by how well they sounded, I dunno if they'll be getting rid of them anytime soon.

The yellow stripe you mentioned at the bottom, what is the reason for that being important? Is it reflective for better visibility?
