And of course I saved the best for last. Here is my Dad on his last day of work. I got him to pose for me on his favorite locomotive, at least on CSX anyway. This is a former Erie-Lackawanna SD45-2 that was later downrated by CSX to an SD40-2. Now this rare locomotive sits as part of a staged derailment for training purposes at CSX’s Tilford Yard in Atlanta. Taken July 1, 2012. You have worked a long 43 years… now you deserve a rest.
