This Weeks's Photo Send photos to photos@trainnews.org


A late running Sunset Limited rolls through Cibolo TX. P42 # 14 has encountered some hard times. There is a large dent in the flank, large areas where paint has been knocked off the nose, leaving what look like deep craters in the metal, and the window on the engineers side looks to have been replaced.

No, that won’t buff right out!
