Very cool. A link or photographer credit would be nice though.

I got this from alt.binaries.pictures.rail Usenet group... there is a gentleman, Paul McGrane, that posts pics from his collection. He gets slides from Ebay, etc. so most photogs are unknown.

Seems odd that those newsgroups are still around.

"Born too late" is a never-ending concept. Perhaps the person taking the Enola yard photograph wished there were some P5's or B1's in the lineup.

Think about what is out there today. There are still plenty of -2's on Class 1 roads - you can expect most of these to be gone in the next few years - keep a sharp watch even now as traffic levels have slumped a bit this year and older, less reliable units are the first to be stored. A short line in New Jersey operates healthy Baldwins. Others in Arkansas or New York have Alcos at work.

The Alexander in North Carolina operates two Baldwins, one GE center cab and an obligatory SW9. The Pickens operates ex-CSX U18Bs and a few Baldwins. A couple of shortlines in Tenn. operates B30-7s including those high nose Franklin Minerals ghosts. NS still hs high hood GPs. And this is just off the top of my head.

Railfanning mihgt not be what it used to be, but there are still a lot of interesting things out there to see and shoot.
