Great photo - maybe it's the telephoto - but that U36C second out looks huge compared to all the 4-axle EMD power in the consist.

The frame on the 6 motor GE's looks like it sat significantly higher than other units (including 4 motor GE's) certainly making them look much more impressive than those other units. Was it something about the 6 axle trucks that caused the need to raise the frame up higher?

From the looks of the paint job the GE was probably just out of the shop too.
