    The headlights in both locos are MV Products lenses. Some of these lenses seem to yellow with age, and even though the 3529 has a recent paint job, the lense is fairly old. The 506 was painted a couple of years ago, I think, and the lense was installed new at that time.

    even that diesel needs a hand

    whenever a job needs done,you can always depend on steam

    a lash-up of MLW diesels eases through the yard while in the background a hungry steamer waits for a load of coal
