    Thanks Raildog. I remember the fist time I saw one, it was actually a S.P. unit. I didn't even notice the "space age" trucks. I just wondered what it was. It was on the Anaheim sub right next to the 5 freeway. As I came up behid it, I thought it was a Sd 45, then I saw it had 4 axle trucks and was too short!
