Were these originally shot in 35m or some other format?

I love the solid F unit lashups. I also enjoy the solid blue look. The red doesn't do much for me...nice post!

You see blue? I think it is a maroon, but may look blu-ish in the light.

Great treasures.  Never get to see enough CGW--thanks for the caboose shot also.

That last photo of the RS2 and the reefers is very cool. Can't say too much for the maroon paint scheme, kinda blah. CGW ran the longest, slowest, head end power trains I ever sat at a crossing for. Thanks for posting these!
