Got anymore shots of those Squaw Creek FM's?  My late grandparents lived in Indiana where those ran within a couple blocks of their house.  Somewhere I had some photos and I gotta find them.

only as a model with a WRONG road number (I couldnt read the number on the picture I've had when I did paint the engine...)



and this was the picture I did use back then:  http://www.northeast.railfan.net/images/pccx721001.jpg
(yeah, and now I know that 721001 was actually the road number and not the number of the picture - doh !)

If I ever find my photos I'll post them.  Thanks for the photos.  Read an article within the past year on this RR.  Forget what they are using now.  EMD something or the other.
