FEATURED "PIC OF THE DAY" JULY 30, 2003

Say "adios" to ONR's spare APU (nicknamed the 2012, APU 206, or the "Kitty Cat"). With the completion of the rebuild of 205, 2012 is seen here with her compressor removed and ready to head back to North Bay where her generator will be returned to Cat. I later learned that 2012 "The Kitty Cat" according to Shops Staff wasn't working out and 205 arrived just in time to take over. Apparently when you put things like Generators and Compressors on flat cars and bolt them down, These things obtain a lot of damage when bouncing around and 2012 was pretty much completely out of commission when I photographed it heading south. I don't think we'll be seeing anything like this gracing these rails anymore but you gotta give the car designers an "A" for effort.
