Pull My Throttle and See What Happens

February 9, 2010

SP B30-7 7838 with 2 SD45's at Hardy Street in Houston, TX on Oct. 23, 1983

SP B30-7 7838 displays the typical behavior of GE locomotives when accelerating quickly – lots of smoke as the turbocharger can’t spool up quick enough to keep up with the increased RPM’s.

The lead unit has all the appurtenances that gave SP locomotives their uniqueness: L shaped engineer’s windshield, gyralite, and the oscillating red light. Note the class lights also.
