Very nice!  I don't think that that is really an "EMD demo unit", but just another EMD Lease Fleet unit.

          Correct, that units demonstration time was probably 40 years ago at least. Just another lease unit.

Yes, it demonstrates that the lease program is in effect.

She started out and Milwaukee Road 171 and picked up the number 6381 courtesy of the Soo Line when they took over the MILW. I'm happy to report that unit is alive and well operating as Wheeling & Lake Erie 7014 in their attractive DRGW style plaint.

Fine shot. I love when EMD uses those blue / white colors on units.

My stating the fact that it was a demo unit is just one more example of do not get old. I meant to say a lease unit.

You can call them whatever you want as long as you continue to share your bottomless pit of outstanding photos. The folks here will definitely sort out the details for you.

I'm chuckling at the "direction" of the paint scheme on current lease units compared to the pleasant blue and white,
the new scheme makes one yearn for a banana!

Thanks or trying. Your photos are outstanding, but please keep it simple... Blue GM locomotive at Mott would have been suffice :-)
