R F & P -- Alexandria, etc., David Davies photos

This page contains links to the Alexandria, Pot Yard, Franconia, etc. photos taken by Dave Davies, dbdavies@cox.net.

142 GP40-2 142 leading an SCL and another RF&P geep with Pigs north on track 2 at Franconia

147 GP40-2 147, GP40 122 and another geep lead pigs southbound on track 1 at Alexandria station. Time looks to be late 1983/early 1984, with nose logo applied, but letters still spelled out on the side of the long hood of the lead unit. 3rd unit has stylized logo on the side of the long hood.
7 SW1500 7 and slug S-1 at Pot Yard, US Route 1 overpass visible at left.
7 SW1500 7 at Pot Yard, being delivered by the B&O after rebuild and dedication as the Wilbur S. Morris
127 GP40s 127 and 126 with 2 other RF&P Geeps southbound at AF, mid 80s, FGE shops still on Duke st in left background.

138 GP35 138 northbound at AF with Pigs in the mid 80s. The FGE shop building appears is still standing on Duke st in the right background.
138 GP35 138 northbound with an Amtrak F40PH at AF in snow, early 80s. The FGE Shops are in the right background.
127 GP40 127, GP 35 133 and two other geeps at Alexandria, mid 80s in Snow, southbound on Track 3 with Pigs, looks to be 1989-1990 with 3 units in the last scheme, and the 2nd unit in the stylized scheme prior.
127 GP40 127, with GP40s 126 and 122 at Alexandria, mid 80s southbound on Track 1 with general freight. The lack of logo on the end of the long hood of the 126 and 122, along with the blue top of the low nose on the 127 suggests in is prior to 1987-88.
131 GP35 131, GP 40-2 143 and another geep at Alexandria in Snow, southbound on Track 1 with mixed freight, looks to be winter 1987-1988, between the loco schemes, and the ex-Southern caboose on the NS train on the right-most track. (Virginia's Caboose law expired on July 1, 1988)
