With a diesel in tow #4960 leaves the depot on a windy fall day. Does anybody else smell French fries?? On display is this ALCO built FA type diesel locomotive. These are quite rare as most have been dismantled by scrappers. As typical for ALCO diesels these have an unusual throaty sound. By the way, I heard that someplace around this station there is a big hole in the ground but who wants to look at deep holes when there's a railroad to check out.
