General Motors Diesel SW1200RS

Dale Wilson, Algoma Eastern Railway. Nickel Belt Rails 1977
Mix and match 'em. As a child in the Sudbury area I liked to see these lines of switchers busily pulling trains for both Canadian railways. Usually pointed in different directions and with a mix of new and old paint schemes, some dirty, some clean, they added interest to what were usually long boring trains of hopper cars.
 When watching the trains, I had three tasks, count the engines, count the cars and wave at the guy in the caboose.
