Odd place for the red light on 3879.  As built they were on low hood.

Nice photos.

Looks like they borrowed it off of a GE!

Next to Eastmoreland Golf Course...look out for flying golf balls hence the reason for the fence!

The shop force really had to go out of their way to rewire that unit to mount the light up on the top of the cab like that.   No apparent reason for that but then again the SP worked in mysterious ways at times.
