Don't have a date for this shot that Fogg took @ Rocky, CO. Despite taking many pictures along the Grande's Big Ten/Plainview area back when these 2 RR's still existed, I don't believe I ever shot any Q power there.

Very Nice! Just goes to show that pool was cool even way back in the 60's:}

q run thru power, guessing 1966 or 65

it was said this was short lived as grande units had sprays set up to cool their units, and q's didn't plus grande units didn't have cab signals

Great shot. That clean Q Chinese Red scheme looks superb in the low-angle evening light.

Best regards,

I wonder how many of the bell ringers were loading; maybe they were better mules in their early lives.

Yes. The 1970s-1980s experience on ATSF and WP in Northern California with 1960s EMD GPs has no bearing on how they performed on the Q in the 1960s. By the 1970s and 1980s, the ex-Q GPs became bell ringers on the BN as well.

Best regards,
