They never tell you what type of locomotive it is. Terrible reporting.

Agreed. A short explanation of what kind is usually helpful to even the non-railfans out there. It's a GP9 in case you were still wondering.

WM GP9. I saw photos of it somewhere painted in dark WM paint with gold lettering.

I'm not sure how many of you are Trainorders.com members but a few days ago, a member posted a sneak peak of the the WM GP9. It looks sharp in the WM black and yellow scheme:

Its the WM chopnose geep that they bought from the Great Walton Railroad, While i will say they did a great job on the restoration, im still bummed cause that engine used to operate just a few miles south of me and i never was able to go back and get some good digital pictures before it was sold, all i have are some old PNS film ones.

Nice. I'm not a fan of this lettering - is this what is called "speed lettering" or something like that? I'd much rather have seen it in red and white, oh well.

Actually, I would much rather have seen it in restored Chessie colors!

YAY I can finally disagree with Janusz on something! I like the paint sheme. And from the looks of the thumnails it does look like it has Speed Lettering

Something looks different, did they paint it or something?
