Mike:

Thanks for resurrecting this photo.  If indeed 1501 and 1922 are running in tandem and 1501 seems to be running richer which is less fuel efficient.

Last month in the picture of 1922 in the "dead line" I had conjectured that she was there due to poor fuel efficiency compared to 1501.  This picture if both locos are pulling indicates she may be in the dead line for another reason.

Anyone know why?

On this bridge several decades back, 2 runaway GP9s fell into the water because of children playing around while they were idle.

I'm just thankful that it's funs as good as it does, and has been a work horse for the NWP. Sometimes looks aren't everything as long as the performance is good.

Lol it sure is. See here while you can, her days are numbered.

I thought for a second that 1922 was another hopper... That thing is getting bad...
