Good picture, but what's truly amazing, Kevin, is that you captured the photo that effectively portays the last 20 years of western railroading. The BN and Santa Fe merger, and the Rio Grande (caboose) behind the Southern Pacific that merged with the Union Pacific (and how painful that transition has been).

I can't believe how well the paint job on the Espee GP40-2has held up. I realize it was a repaint with the flying SP but it still looks good (except for all the UP stuff on it).
