Nice work on that Steve!!!!! :D Have you noticed this practice on many
other loco's and is this just a CN practice?

It sure is a neat idea though on putting them there. Especially if you've
ever had too hike one up onto the deck of a loco!!!!!!! Their not light by
any means!! :o :o

Great job, Steve, could pass for "O" scale easily. What I can't figure out is what keeps the EOT from bouncing off the bracket as the truck goes over switches and diamonds.  :P I second Jon, those suckers are heavy:o  The AN started using EOT's in 1979, before I came on board in 1981.

steve,


              i like that! i have seen them jammed into the grabs on the nose of some csx engines. maybe the crew was really stupid, and didn't know what the difference was between the front and rear of the train? ha ha ha.
