The paint crew has been busy!

This is how the caboose looked last spring.

Then it was painted and sat all summer!

Then the boss saw this unit and thought!!

So the crew got busy!

The boss wanted to see how the logo would look so some mock ups were done and the decal guy {Stan} was contracted.
Will post pics later when done!

I think the caboose will look O.K. with the plow?

A tourist railroad in Ohio (I forget which) used 5-gallon buckets to cap the stack on their SW-1. The engineer told me they forgot to remove it once before starting up, and launched it a considerable distance.


I think that is what I should have done when I started the GP-7 last night. I hate climbing on top of those things to remove stack covers.
