Grand Trunk Western # 4918
This old veteran is showing its age and Nature's weathering. This is a great photo for model information with the weathering and details. I have already one GP-38-2 on my roster, #4916. I think that someday 4918 might be a subject to paint and detail. Though the next one will be a Proto 2000 to Atlas HO Scale model.
Here GTW 4918 heads westbound from Port Huron Tunnel Yard at "Tappen." Tappen was the name of the interlocking plant and tower, now long gone of course. This is train # 500 which goes between Port Huron and Durand switching the industries on the Flint Subdivision and sometimes all the way to Battle Creek.
Long Live the GTW Blue.... get your shots now, for GT locos are going to the dead line quick.
