Here's a neat photo from a trip north on The Polar Bear Express August 2003. We're aboard FP7au 2001 as our train rolls into Ranoke (Mile 112 on the Island Falls Subdivision) for a meet with the southbound Little Bear lead by GP38-2 1808. On the ground you can see the Little Bear's Engineman Cal getting some fresh air before hopping on his power to continue south. The sillhouette is that of retired Engineman Al who dropped in for a visit to see the 2000 series FP7au's in action. This is his first look at the FP7au since their massive rebuilds.
