Wonderful shot! You chose the best place to do the right click while the locomotive was brightened from the sun without all the shadows that were behind. ;) Nice one!

Hmm, the number board looks drawn on too. Though it's probably the dirtiest i've seen, I have seen worse damage to them.

I dunno, that font looks the same as the other Genesis units I've seen, though the numbers look like they've been squished closer together than they should be...

I have catching up to do on trashed Amtrak units, that's for sure. Take a look at this one: [link] :noes:

Seen that one before. Can't remember what kind of idiot they hit to make the fire. Although I have also seen the Amtrak derail grom hitting the garbage truck

From the article ([link]), it appears it hit a tractor trailer carrying garbage. I was personally impressed that the engineer apparently got out, uncoupled the consist, and then moved the engine forward. That takes balls.
