Chasing the Torpedo Boat- 8-29-2017

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?
PatC created a monster, 'cause nobody wants to see Don Simon no more they want AARR I'm chopped liver, well if you want AARR this is what I'll give ya, bad humor mixed with irrelevant info that'll make you roll your eyes quicker than a ~Z~ banhammer...
