Painters mistake! No I,m running backwards, dummy!
Author: slacks

Yrs ago at East Dubuque Ill caught this ballast train about to cross IC diamond. Having seen many SD-9s on the BN I thougth this was a mistake. Most little SDs on the BN were of Q heritage and ran short hood foward but this was an EX-GN SD-9 and they were set up the other way. MY BAD but it still doesn,t look right!

Vary rarely did I ever see a former GN GP20 or SD9 lead in former Q territory, they were mainly buried in the consist. Occasionally Galesburg would send one on point but it would be short hood forward.
