Hey there Swsat gang, welcome once again to our weekly gathering of those who appreciate the smaller loco's on the roster. We pay homage to the little engines that do big things.
To start things off this week we have some full size photos. For starters we have an NS gp38-3, photographed by yours truly. This ex gp-50 and her crew were seen spotting a boxcar in Mount Wolf PA.
Next up is a familiar face to many, Strasburg RR 8616, at Paradise PA as an Amtrak train rolls by. Photo credit to reddit user u/MeeperFive
Please share an image, a video, a story, a happy thought etc., related to a switching loco of any era or scale!
Switcher Saturday guidelines:
1. Everybody continues to be nice. In the digital age it's too easy to forget that words on a screen were typed by a living person. It's never been an issue on this thread yet, and I think we should be proud of that.
2. The subject here is small locomotive power of all kinds. 3 rail O is a given, but all are welcome, Full size, Hongz, live steam, park RR's, industrial critters, clockwork specials etc. You get the idea!
3. This weekly thread starts on Saturday but is open all week. Feel free to check out old threads. Here is a link to last week's thread.
4. This thread is in the photo album section to follow the terms of service of the OGR forum website. In that same vein, please only post pictures of your own or those you have permission to use here. Think it's cool but can't find a way to get copy and paste permission, no problem, just post a link instead.
5. Have fun!
