When trains were trains! I'm curious, when are these engines from?
By the way these are some amazing images. I can hardly believe this is from 1987!

The famous BN E9s were rebuilt from BN E units by Morrison Knudson of Boise in 1973, Idaho to modify BN E9As with 645 power assemblies. A 500 KW Detroit Diesel replaced the steam generator for head-end power. I think they coul've kept going but but Metra relaced them with F40PHM-2s around 1990, :(

I gotta say I wish they were still common too. They have a really cool streamline art deco look to them

I always wondered why they just couldn't rebuild the classic carbody with modern innards! Imagine an E9-2!

Me too. And the same with cars. I'd like to see an old style car with modern components inside.

If I had known this week's lottery numbers, I would have won...

And I would buy some old train cars and make a house out of them ;)
