Remember that advertising slogan, “GE, It brings good Things to Life”? Well on the Sunset Route east of Seguin TX, a good train rolled west toward San Antonio. The three locomotives have two very heavy generators in tow, spliced by the usual idler cars. Those KRL cars hauling the generators have six heavy duty freight trucks to support the load.

And a friendly wave from the cab. Made my day.
