BNSF with a Sweet old SF loco outside Cheyenne, Wyoming, around December 29th 2010.
Sorry - they're a little blurry - I forgot to take the camera off manual focus.

Awesome! Hey, check out my FB page. Put some pictures of the cat up but I got some shots of NYS&W's locos that were parked across the river from me. Didn't have time to get a good one of the SD70 though. They had 5 locos over there today.

I guess it would be a bit self-serving to say that maybe both of you should get a job here in Indiana.

Mr. Peabody just open in the last year, what will be a hugh Surface mine to the North.

U/G they are stagnate. Their main U/G in this area got hammered by MSHA back in the fall. They have miles of beltline and some bad top.

From what I have gathered, Peabody U/G would be the last place to work at least in this area.

I'm hearing some good things out of Sunrise U/G up at Carlise. They are a small company and seem like they are trying to take care of thier people.

That is Badass! Banks. Thanks for representing. I only had 100 of those printed so you might have a collectors item there.

I miss the old Warbonnet. That was the prettiest scheme out there. I also like the Hiawatha scheme on the Milw. locomotives, but Warbonnet is the best. If you don't like it-SCREW YOU!
