The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch.

CSX 2435

Here is a cow/calf Yard set. An SD40-2 provides the power and a Yard Slug (1067) provides extra traction using the power form the 2435. This was shot at Tilford Yard in Atlanta, Georgia. This setup is commonly used to push trains over the classification hump.

Thanks; this was the "Slug" idea, rebuilt with a lower profile, that I was thinking of...easily discernible, to the unskilled onlooker.
