|HLCX 6058 ex- Missouri Pacific 3010. Built 3-67.|
|Probably the most "typical SD-40" in the bunch.|
|HLCX 6522 ex-DRGW 6522. Built 4-68 as an SD-45 It has been rebuilt with a 16 cylinder prime mover, Dash 3 controls and is rated at 3,000 HP.|
|That characteristic flared radiator and long body -- the unmistakable lines of an SD-45.|
||View from the cab of part of the lineup.|
|A pile of steel plate welded to the floor at the end of the long hood compensate for four less cylinders to balance the weight of the locomotive.|
|It's been a long time since a dozen units congregated in Medford.
Needed: A shot from McAndrews overpass of this lineup.
Observation: Shooting dark, shiny locomotives late on a partly cloudy Winter afternoon is a bear.
|Flared carbody of the 6522 reflect off the windows in this portrait of the 6091.|
