Assorted pics from work


Next door to the district support center was a rail car repair facility.  One of the cars they had in their yard was from the long defunct Ashley, Drew & Northern Railway.  This boxcar has clearly seen better days.

The facility also had the cutest little locomotive.  It's an EMC SW1 switcher, built in 1939 for the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy.  I couldn't get a good photo of it because it was always behind a row of boxcars, but here's what it looks like.

When I see "SDSU", I think San Diego State University, not South Dakota.



Someone had an inflatable bear named Snowflake.

I finally found a use for a Mac Mini.

Nice pics, but shouldn't that be "EMD" rather than "EMC"? As I recall, it's the Electro-Motive Division of GM (though I don't know if it's still owned by them).

EMD was formed from the merger of the Electro-Motive Corporation and the Winton Engine Company in 1941.

When I worked at ADM Grain I operated an SW 1200 there was a tag near the controls that said GM on it.
