Good morning one and all and welcome to another edition of Switcher Saturday!
This weekly thread celebrates the smaller locomotives that do the big work of railroading. From modern research platforms on rails, to ancient steamers, gasoline powered Vulcans, battery operated Bugs, diesels of every variety and a few overhead electric machines thrown in too, Switchers come in all kinds of configurations and do all sorts of jobs. Some never leave the shop while others are the face of the company by delivering the local freight.
For this weekend's kickoff image we are going all around the country in a short trip. PRR saddletanker leads a local through the backyard, with a Union Pacific stock car and Atlantic Coast Line caboose in tow.
Switcher Saturday is always open to all scales and gauges. The only thing that is asked is that we keep things somehow Switcher related, follow the ogr tos regarding pictures, and have fun! So please have share your photos, videos, stories and memories. Have a great weekend everyone!
