Competitors pass in the night.

A powerful Union Pacific gas turbine locomotive has an easy time with a short freight passing another rare loco in the form of an ex-SP&S Alco locomotive,
now a BN diesel unit waiting its time to get on the main line.
In the land of make believe Don Carnegie wins the prize with a modern diesel with a heritage paint
in Milwaukee Road passenger colors. The second unit is another "what if" the Rock island survived
to put this color scheme on another modern unit.
Steve Hart runs BNSF trains almost every day so on his day off he runs BN locos on the Evergreen.
Steve Weso is another Wishram baby so he models the SP&S as he remembers his dad running the
real ones back in the day.
That couple looks like they want to hop aboard this SP&S freight to get back to Spokane. Maybe that
will work if the engineer slows down enough to allow them to jump on.
Now we have a new railroad called Citirail in Spokane or is it another lease unit owned by some
small bank in New york called Citibank that realized an investment in locomotives is a good idea.
