This loco has been sitting here for as long as I can remember.

I believe this is the same unit:

Nice find....looks like a beautiful old station in the background too. Shame that isn't being restored.

Yeah, that is even more sad, it has been in a state of disrepair since I was a kid! It was built in 1891 and is a beautiful building. I wish somebody would take the time to restore it, but I guess BNSF owns it now.

Cool shots. Hopefully the building and engine will find a renewed life sooner than later.

I like the last shot through the canopy of the station. I worked on GP-9s although they were in better shape than this unit.
