Ah yes, the Kodachrome from the failed merger between SP and SF. The greatest case of "What could've been". I think if they'd been willing to give up some of their duplicate routes, they would've been approved to merge.

Kodachrome My Favorite, both as an engine and a film. Sadly they don't make that film anymore or even this engine.

I wonder what things would be like if SP and ATSF actually merged?

Then, my guess, CN + BN, UP + ?NS... Mega-mergers just in a different pattern!

UP and BN probably would've merged. with UP becoming the joint owner like they did for all the other railroads they accquired in the 80's and 90's. NS and CSX probably would've still split up Conrail between the two of them.

Thanks man!!!! A cannon CanoScan 4400F...I just set it up in my office so I'm scanning more than when I was in the other room. But I still like taking current train pix too! I scan the negatives and it takes up to an hour of Photoshoppe post production to clean them up. I'll post another now!!! Just for you!

LOL awesome!

I just purchased an Epson V330 scanner with the built in deal that allows me to scan slides and negatives.

I don't have any old slides or negatives I took myself (what a dumb kid.. I watched the trains but never took pics!!!!) but I do have some old slides I have purchased so I might scan and upload those!

Sounds cool! Just like how stupid I was not taking pix until '87! I could have gotten way earlier stuff if I had sense!

I could have been shooting a lot of Norfolk Western/Norfolk Western stuff from the early 80s... The tracks were a short bike ride/walk from my house. Oh well!
