Earlier this week, Brian Smith sent along this very nice picture of HBIX (H.Broer Equipment) 9159, an SW 1200, sitting in St.Thomas, Ontario. Thanks Brian. This would make for a really nice model..Not usually too crazy about orange painted locomotives, but I do like the way this one has faded down to a pastel tone. I don't know what exactly that grey box on the side is for, but that handrail sure is distinctive!.
Brian advises that the locomotive is being sent to the Lambton Diesel Specialists shop here in Sarnia. I'll be keeping an eye out for it, although I doubt if I'll be able to get very close to it. The LDS shop is located on CN property, and to get there, you have to drive past the CN police office.
I thought I'd feature this pair of RailGon gondolas this week, weathered for Jamie Barron.
