The Espee Lives!
Title:  The Espee Lives!
Description:  This Southern Pacific AC4400CW has somehow managed to escape the paint booths for 20 years. She is still wearing her original coat of SP gray and red. Though her Bloody Nose has since faded to pink, she is unpatched, and other than her reflective yellow frame stripe, bears no markings alluding to UP ownership. 343 is one of five AC4400CWs on UP still in SP paint, at the time of this photograph.

Gang Way!
Title:  Gang Way!
Description:  No, not really...! This was a terribly difficult photo to pull off, mostly because the bright sun made it nearly impossible for me to see my camera's LCD screen as I framed the shot! The locomotives were shut off and tied down, don't fret. :P
