BRC TR4A-B  7-14-87 by eyepilot13 BRC TR4A-B  7-14-87 by eyepilot13
7/14/87: Back in the day of interesting locomotives without ditchlights; SW7 cow and calf set 505/513 (blt. 9/50) head a transfer run into the East end of Clearing at Rockwell Street Yard. The cow and calf versions of SW7s are known as TR4s!

The J had some of those B units until the CN bought them out. So funny looking

have you ever noticed that slugs like that look like steam engine tenders.

Now that you mention it...I see what you mean but the TR4B is a cabless switcher semi-permanently coupled to the mother unit and technically not a slug. There weren't a whole lot of these sets made.

I miss those days, technically not a slug because the TR4B has a prime mover in it not just traction motors.
