NS F units in different settings
Author: WLE2679

In seeing some of the nice NS F units photos, here are a few different photos of them not hooked up to the business train.     We actually only saw the business train once, blocked by a 64R in Lewistown, PA with a PC and IT duo as power.

One last one at Spencer.   The rest are them sitting at Juniata when they were clear of items around them that my dad took.

Whats with the CN 9177?  I think I shot that thing in either 1987 or 1988 in its final years on the CN around Stratford and Toronto!
Is it still around or maybe scrapped?

Hi Greg.  I remember my dad talking to you on the phone about the CSX F units on the roadrailers video you had.....back on beta tape. 

Others can correct me if I am wrong, that Wick Moorman wanted another set of F units and those two shown were the A units, the B unit was a CP unit booster or slug I believe. (I never actually saw that unit in person)   After he retired the plan never happened, and NS looked to donate them, but ended up to selling them to Cresson Steel.   The A units were sold to a shortline or shortlines.....I am not sure what happed to the B unit.
