NS 3804 Returns
« on: December 03, 2011, 02:25:55 PM »
For those who missed this blue SD38 during the nearly 6 months it spent in the area all Summer, it's back working in Muncie for the time being.  Last returned from Portland on L8G yesterday morning.

That SD38 has been a good work horse for the road. Given it started life as PC 6929/CR6929 it has been around 40+ years and still going so it can't be all that bad. When I rode on them they worked great.

I'd take that over the crap now.  Because if I had to I could work on it and make it go.
