Random Rail Shot
In a rare “Double Whammy”, I present to you a random rail shot to follow up my vintage motive power post. Above is Claremont Concord Railroad (CCRR) GP9 1907, and a handsome locomotive it is. If I can be honest with you, I prefer their wicked old Alco S-units but with one down for the count, apparently, and the S-units being somewhat limited in the traction dept., I guess I can see why they sought out something with a little more get-up-and-go. At any rate, I made a habit of visiting White River Jct. after my morning runs this past summer and I caught CCRR picking up this string of cars, I had to snap a couple shots on my cell phone (which I both rue and lament). If you are near White River Jct. in the morning you should stop by and check it out. If I recall correctly there are five railroads servicing White River these days, the mornings appear to be the busy times for all.
