Happy Holidays everyone. Just returned from my trip to India and still feeling jetlagged a bit so nothing new on OWNRY.
He sent over these photos of new custom painted engines to be used in his operations
From the email:
"just completed painting a couple of locos. The experimental BN scheme was applied to a GP-40 by the CB&Q. There are some good pictures of CB&Q 629 in "the BN in Color" volume 2. The VO 1000 is for the grain company in Elma. I've decided to have the company switcher do the duties at the grain silo and flour mill. This will be a separate job from the BN Elma switcher. The operator who does the West Coast Grain job will also do the Simpson, McCleary switcher and he Mud Bay Lumber, log train from Camp 6 out to the woods. This should be pretty much a full time position for one operator. "
