Can you say "Hot Rod"?
Author: railfanner

Caught this today at Buncher Industrial Park. Buncher is located a few miles away from Conway yard, in the Pittsburgh, Pa area. Is this the only GE painted up in this scheme? The unit doesnÂ’t seem to be in working condition. Exhaust was covered and there was no horn. There where about a thousand people driving up and taking photos and video of it all day.

All in all it was a pretty good day. 16 trains for the day. Caught a few horse heads, and a primer. Thanks to Andy (Nikonman) for giving this baby a nickname. Also caught 5 Macs today. 7207 was on 18G. 7208, 7213, 7214, and 7203 where all on an engine move to Etna, Pa.

Roster shot of GECX 3007 and NS 7208 are below.
I\'ll add some links to some other photos later.

Nice shot! You\'re right, that could be the single most photographed unit in the U.S. during today\'s outings.
BTW, I didn\'t realize it was that "green" in Leetsdale. I hope my MAC\'s come out.

If 18G had a MAC, I guarantee it wasn\'t heading for Oak Island.

That thing just came out of Juniata on Friday night with 2 other MACS. Then was sent to Huff on Saturday with I think, the 7201 to power a gypsum train west from there.

Maybe Southfork will be back up to 6 SD80MACS again for the week coming up. That would be nice. Not a GE in sight last week.

NS 66T gypsum train came out of Huff Power Plant Saturday Evening with #7207 and #7201 for power.

18G on Sunday had #7207 5 deep in it\'s consist!

Here is a shot of the #7207 @ Bovard.
