Finally was able to place a photo in the blog's header again. I had been putting a new picture there each month, and I don't know what happened but I was unable to do so for quite a long while. That's JSSX 813 returning from working at South Industrial Blvd. 813 was previously numbered 815 until I changed it just recently.
Four axle power is the far and away the more common choice for use on the shortline here, with an occasional 6 axle locomotive thrown in just for variety. But on my GTW here, there's pretty well always an SD40 or SD38 in use.
On a facebook group, I recently ran across an SD40 in CN colours and sub-lettered for GTW that was offered up for sale. I made an offer for it, which was accepted, (boy, that etransfer sure does simplify things doesn't it) and the engine was delivered to my door a week or so later.
Here's a couple of looks at CN/GTW 5231, fresh out of the box and on the bench awaiting some mild weathering and then application of the detail parts before it gets sent out onto the rails.
