News From July 2004


Posted Friday, July 30, 2004
Just a note that the new GP38s are starting to be delivered, as 706 was spotted outside Mid-America in KC, and there's another one in the paint booth. The really interesting thing is that they're coming with a solid yellow end on the front and a striped end on the back. The solid yellow nose also has the Rock Island-inspired IAIS "beaver pelt" logo. Oh, yes, and I should also mention that IAIS 706 has a dynamic brake blister, though it's almost certainly disabled. Hopefully I'll be able to share a few photos soon, as a gentleman was nice enough to post them to the IAIS list. - NDH
