  15. Anyone know the significance of the "Ak-Sar-Ben" bridge name?

    Some years later there was a horse racing track with the same name.

    they call that a "Married Pair". in the case of these they are 1500hp each. so all four equal one modern day loco roughly. they did that to avoid having to turn them around. they could just walk back to the other cab. the a's are on the end the b's are the middle ones. so a unit b unit. the "car body" style(looked like/based off of pass cars) didn't last long as it was a pain to service. the next gen look more like what there is today. GM revolutionized Loco building. Steam was built specific for that rr, its terrain/needs etc. GM told the railroads this is what we build. buy it or don't. not fussing with them lowered the unit cost a lot. GM was the only manufacture to build a lot of diesels during ww2. gave them a jump out of the gate. before long they stomped baldwin and fairbanks morse out of business. Alco struggled along until GE left them and made their own. Early GE u models were nicknamed uboats or alco killers. alco went in 68 or 69.

    I drove thru there the night of the tornado, about an hour before it hit. came back thru the next weekend. crazy wreckage. the tornado smashed into the side of the mountain behind the view in the pic. took every tree and all the soil off, and left a huge bare rock patch/cliff. that whole area has nutty weather at times. if you take the pike, watch on the right, in ny,before the austerlitz exit. if the trees are bare, there is two halves of a motel that got hammered by a twister in the 70's or very early 80's

    This would be me (& my baby sis) in maybe that same Merc back in the day. Or they did several as a promo. The actual steering wheel is a bit different.
