IC SD70 Then and Now
Author: MaryMcPherson

Same unit, nearly a quarter-century apart.

In August, 1998, I boogied down to Makanda, Illinois, to catch a southbound Illinois Central freight headed up by SD70 #1009.  This morning, the same locomotive was sporting Canadian National colors as it led southbound A408 into Centralia, Illinois.

What'd you say?
Can't hear you over this loud @$$ engine, cause the RR didn't buy the quiet version.

Then and now photos are always appreciated by this TO member. Like the appearance of the SD70s in either scheme.
