Western Railway Museum excursion train. Sacramento Northern # 1005 is providing the power, running on the same track it did in revenue service over 100 years ago. It was built in San Francisco in 1912.

Since I have not been able to take any recent train photos yet, I just got my scans from ScanCafe. More film negative scans from 1999 Railfair in Sacramento. Shot with a Canon A-1.

The last scan had a funny color shift I have been attempting to correct with limited success. It's a great photo and scan otherwise.

Pakistan Railways AGE-30 (ADtranz General Electric) serial 6003 on its way to Central Diesel Locomotive Workshops Rawalpindi seen here entering Ghungrila Railway Station.
Pakistan Railways AGE-30 is ADtrans model DE-AC33C with 16 cylinder prime mover and 3000HP, PR tested a 12 cylinder prototype in 1996 and was pretty happy to place first order for AC33C with 16 cylinder GE-7FDL 16 Diesel Motor and single driver cab configuration and placed first unit into active service in September 1996. PR had its first 10 units imported as fully assembled and remaining 20 units were assembled at Risalpur Locomotive Factory Pakistan,

Wire brush and a little paint, it will be just fine?
