Back in the early 80's I got my first SLR. I hadn't been steered towards slide film so I shot a lot of print film back then. The BN roundhouse was a favorite haunt of mine, I knew one of the electricians and would stop by and visit him on occasion, not that it was hard to get permission to be on the property back in 1981. The F's ended up here near the end of their careers. 1st up is a shot of 4 rows of them by the roundhouse.

This GN heater car was still around then, I remember it being used on a few museum excursions.

Finally out back on the ready track a pair of high horsepower units.
