Surviving GP40-2s - Page 3

Talk about history all in one shot. Here we have a bridge with Pennsylvania Railroad cast in the concrete on the former PRR/PC/CR now NS Ft Wayne Line. Up above a work train waits, it's crew enjoying a nice Fall day. Norfolk Southern ("PRR") GP40-2 #3000 still wears it's CRQ blue, and still shows it's Reading Lines heritage with those drip strips on the cab roof and the smaller fuel tank. Let's see now, a NS/CR/RDG unit on a NS/CR/PC/PRR bridge.....click, history recorded.
