GE’s Rule the Roost – Pic of the Day

January 28, 2010

I know it’s fashionable to complain about the thousand and thousands of look-alike wide-cab GE’s that seem to be on every BNSF and NS train, with UP and CSX not quite as bad.

There used to be a time when seeing a bunch of GE’s together was a good thing. Of course that was when GE was the minority builder.

SP 7802 amid a group of B30-7's and a U33C, West Colton service track in August 1986.

We’re deep inside forbidden territory at the West Colton engine facility where a gaggle of GE’s await the next call to service. The unit just to the left of the 7779 is U33C SPMW 8653. It was no longer in revenue service. It and the 8669 were kept at West Colton for some time as stand-by sources of electricity.
