Where Do I Sign Up?

August 22, 2012

I saw this on an automobile in Spencer, NC this past 4th of July. I sure wouldn’t mind having one on my car. I wouldn’t even mind the $70 premium, but moving to Nebraska is a bit much.

This particular design was sponsored by the UP Railroad Museum as part of their sesquicentennial celebration.

    Thanks for listening.Just returning a reply to your question about GE selling so many units to the the many railroads.Well I don’t want to make this a long reply but I believe when GM the car guys stopped supporting EMD the loco division,they EMD fell behind in technology.Add that to the arrival of the Dash-8 and Dash-9 locos which I believe again are the best locos that GE produced for reliability and simplicity took EMD by storm and they couldn’t compete.This left GE with an open market to all the railroads.
