End-cabs are getting rare? I guess it's a good thing that the HMCR is currently planning on keeping their old (and corroding) SW9 then, even if it isn't operational nor would they have a use for it.
Also, NS likes to use MP15DCs and their MP15DC rebuilds (MP15Es and an MP21E) inside yards. However, I did also see a end-cab switchers being used for a local up in Nashville, TN last year, though I didn't get any pictures sadly.

Used to see them around here on the CP rail but they got rid of their ex-MILW MP15s. IHB still runs SW1500s. Most uyard power I see now are Geeps or SD40-2s.

the closest thing we have to those here in Australia are the VR Y class shunting/mainline diesels. still a common sight round spencer street/southern cross and due to their age heritage lines and museums have quite a few of them.

I almost never see these anymore. It used to be so cool to catch them on the mainline.

I'm surprised at how rare end cabs are these days, I see a few of them go by my house every now and then. Usually they are EMD SW8s, or a SW1500.

I love the combo of the old trains and even older buildings in the background!

All those older buildings are probably torn down by now, unfortunately!

Such a shame. Whenever you go into a newer building you can really feel the cheapness of the construction. In an older building that isnt the case

You really understand this! Cool! I love old buildings...politicians don't!

Exactly, I've told you before. Except for the buildings which were historic, our entire riverfront was leveled. What could have been a very amazing commercial or residential area based in old warehouses is now covered in flimsy highrises. And politicians don't get this. Old buildings draw people in. People want those minimally altered areas. The most popular areas to visit or live in tend to be older neighborhoods.

It's all about the money, the kick-backs, the bribes and corruption. Very sad really.

Pretty much, yeah. What scares me is how much control corporate donors have over both the election and the presidency
