Chasing the Torpedo Boat- 8-29-2017

Unread post by TrainWatcher »

Got a chance to finally check out the newly done INER "torpedo boat" GP9H #5903 (ex-CUT/NYC) yesterday and do a little chasing. What a wonderful job by the guys at Indiana Northeastern.

Nice pictures TW. I wonder why they changed the number from 1603?
