I’ve been looking through the few photographs that I still have that were taken at the L&N’s Gentilly Yard in New Orleans back in the early 1960s. I spotted this view of a quartet of GE U25B units sitting on the fueling track after servicing. I don’t recall ever showing this image, likely because the lighting wasn’t very good and it’s a bit washed out. But today it comes out for viewing.
I wasn’t a fan of GE locomotives back in those days. I thought EMDs were the king, and ALCOs were okay even though they sounded “weird” (I love their sound now though). But after my tour through these units, I decided that maybe they weren’t so bad. 🙂
Also note the lone EMD GP7 over at the left. I’m assuming it was one of those used in passenger service based on the lighting on it’s hood.
