This is kind of an unusual photo I took on August 23, 1996, TWENTY-SIX YEARS AGO, while making my way across the UP Hoisington Subdivision, a former Missouri Pacific property that is now largely abandoned.

I spent some time riding in the trailing units as the lead cab can get a little cramped at times with people and grips and such. This is the view from WC SD45 6520, looking at the hind end of WC F45 6651. While I was doing some Internet research to learn more about these units, I read where the 6651 had an experimental, one-of-a-kind paint scheme with some New York Central-style "lightning" swaths painted along the carbody.

This was taken somewhere between Horace (MP 731) and Modoc (MP 692.1).
