Another new hint to help you all out, this time look at the attached photo. It is at the same location sort of, but in a different place.

The SOO LINE shots were taken at the east end of NS's Argos, IN. yard by Bruce Emmons, back around the early to mid 1990's. Here are more shots of the east end of the yard with the original posted trivia photo, enjoy.

The photo taken with the NS power at the west end of the yard was taken by me back in the 1990's.

Nice catch of a high hood 40-2.  Not too many of those running any more
