Last weekend I finally was able to get out for some train chasing again. My work schedule has been pretty intense, with something schedule most every weekend, so it was nice to get a full Saturday to go chasing. I also got a heads up on Sunday about an EMD SD70ACe coming through town, which got me out and about pretty quickly. This past week between work and internet service distruptions, I am just now getting the pictures posted and this email out. I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I enjoy getting the and posting them.


Sunday, My FIRST SD70ACe to see in person.

Randy,

Cool to know who the person is behind that KATO ad, that is a great photo, and they used that photo quite a bit, over a couple months. I also have that engine model, they did a great job.

I saw some some of these for the first time on the UP not to long ago moving between the Proviso and Californa yards in Chicago.
