It was sweet, I have operated about a half dozen of them. Here is another one, this one from just west of Sloat California.

I have had the pleasure of operating a few of the new SD70ACe's as well.

Manifest from RoseVille to FResno I'm assuming.

I envy you Erik, I just don't see the new stuff for some reason. They just don't come out here. Same ol’ stuff over and over. Same GE’s, same EMD’s. The only time I ever saw one was when it was out here for high altitude testing and sitting on the storage track at East Portal for a while. Then had one as a helper too, but that’s just not the same, I want to see a clean cab!!!

Assumed correct Don.

I think the reason why there are so many out here is because they are set up for DPU ops. However alot of them seem to be on the stack trains.
