Don't worry, the GE is newer and bigger! We'll have a better chance of survival! :lol:

Well, maybe the initial collison, but what about the characteristic spontaneous combustion of the engine? :lol:

bigger and newer yes...but Id take my chances on the EMD, at least you wont burn to death, or have the shame of getting snuffed on a GE...heck, thats about as bad as getting whacked in New york city. :wink:

I See that the railroads up there have to do the same as the NS and CSX do around here. Put a EMD or two in the consist to pick up the slack when a GE craps out 5 miles out of the yard. At least if the GE is leading and they hit something, it wont be a great loss and the good power will be proctected

That train went as follows

6019

and another EMD, cant remember which.

Also that day was inside a CWR train highlights from that are

On a different note, I am glad that GM put more effort into building their locomotives than their cars. I mean if they put the same effort into their locomtives as their automobiles their locomotives would run like BBD! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Well, you know, an EMD locomotive is really nothing more than a big ol' Chevy truck.

Instead of a new screener from the west coast (or along with one from the west coast) I think we need a screener who is a GE fan. (I'm open!) :lol:

Well I have never seen any problems with GE, I see more problems with GM units in Canada. They suck during the winter. The ONT GP38's always are breaking down in the winter causing ONT to send a bus to do the run from Northbay to toronto. Might I add, Buses are terrible. I have never seen any worse out of a GE. What about GO's F59PH's they seem to be a lot of trouble according to the mechanics, not enough power. Now I am not suporting GE units but I am defending them.
