Trains on google street view.

Can't have signals without railroads, so talk about your favorite locomotives, railroads and any other (non signal) railroad related stuff.

Enola Yard, this actually has a two NS D9-44CWs (9875 and 9464, both horsehead and white stripe paint, respectively), NS 1011, and 8165, along with a SD40-2 (presembly 1647): https://www.google.com/maps/@40.2930754,-76.9298799,3a,63.6y,80.29h,86.07t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sye6Jyy5H18fFHnQiwnGmFw!2e0!6s%2F%2Fgeo3.ggpht.com%2Fcbk%3Fpanoid%3Dye6Jyy5H18fFHnQiwnGmFw%26output%3Dthumbnail%26cb_client%3Dmaps_sv.tactile.gps%26thumb%3D2%26w%3D203%26h%3D100%26yaw%3D135.58568%26pitch%3D0%26thumbfov%3D100!7i13312!8i6656
I'll find the streetview for the location in August of 2014, where there was a BNSF SD70ACe. I thought the line was cab-signals only, and BNSF locomotives cannot lead on that line, if I have time.

Did you notice the UP SD90MAC? This has probably been evolved into one of NS's SD70ACU's.

I haven't noticed them when I was doing the link, and hey, you found the BNSF SD70ACe I was looking for. On the two CP GP38-2s, one is a SD40-2, and the other red locomotive, I don't know.

Same thing happened with the AC6000s, later getting derated to 4400hp from 6000hp. Reason is is that they performed terribly at their original horsepower rating.


Sorry for the late quote, how exactly did they do terrible?

Just weren't very reliable, AFAIK.
