Open for business
Title:  Open for business
Description:  When I first saw this cab over a year ago, it was beat all to heck and painted red. Glad to see she is looking good and ready for business. Sporting a dual cam setup on the crossbuck post, outdoor dining, satelite TV...what a way to railfan. Provding you can sleep once in bed.

38-3
Title:  38-3
Description:  Here, shows the nice paint scheme and also the classification lights. When I worked for ACWR and ran this motor, the classification lights were covered over with plate steel. If I remember correctly, when ACWR hit loaded grain cars, I think this motor was on point and this is an ex CR short hood. Hence the classification lights.
