The Diesel Shop

Serving The Railfan Community since 1994

Conrail C424 #2492 outside the Altoona, Pennsylvania diesel shop in 30 March 1978.

(Doug Lilly photo)

An excellent photo by Doug Lilly gets us started for the month of April. Alco fans probably don't object, but three of the four monthly front covers so far this year have featured Schenectady-built locomotives. A better balance will be achieved as the hunt for future monthly front cover photos proceeds.

Additionally, the final two sections of the "Critter Notebook" have been installed. The first of which is the "Brand X End-Cabs" photo essay, and the other is "GE's SL Series" short line and industrial locomotives profile. If you are a Kansas City Southern fan, this month's "Remember When" highlights KCS's decades-long hunt for a colorful brand.

Thanks for stopping.
