F units still rule the rails!

Brand new Alaska Railroad F units handle Jim Bowden's 50s era passenger train with a prominent
blue paint scheme
A lowly Great Northern S-1 Alco switcher gets the duty to work the branch line and pick up some log loads. Hopefully he treads lightly over that shaky timber trestle.
Rock Island locos show up in a "what if" they survived paint scheme and acquired these locos.
Burt had his F units for Union Pacific running the Red main and rolls past our wonderful industry that
supplies us with such luxuries such as energy to run our cars and keeps our homes warm at a much lower
cost than windmills and sun panels.
Our third look at F units is Keith Wiles new set for the Spokane, Portland and Seattle Railroad. They
served the SP&S and BN for almost 40 years!
Large, big power comes our way in the form of Alco and EMD power including a F45 as the third
unit in the mix. All the Alcos and the F45s are long gone from the real railroad but we still got 'em.
