Colorful Locomotive Mega Lash Up
A rare catch as a “consist” of 20 locomotives put on quite a display!
In a power move from Galveston, Texas, to the Kansas City , these locomotives will be sold and/or rehabbed and purchased for short line or overseas use.
Additionally, this consist includes an interesting assortment of older box cars and one tank car.
Sprinkled in are GP-30 locomotives and some Cf-7 locomotives still painted with their familiar blue and yellow paint schemes!
Some railroad terms:
- Consist- a group or formation of locomotives and/or railcars.
- DIC-dead in consist- deadheading or having no power turned on.
- DIB-delay in block- if you stop or slow to below 10mph, you have to be prepared to stop at the next signal.
Let us know if you have ever seen a grouping of locomotives being transported in a procession such as this! It must be awesome to see!
