Indiana and Ohio Railway GP30 #87

I have the honor of being a friend to a railroad guy who is a hardcore railroader.  He has been doing this since he was 18 years old. While exchanging lines from the movie Pulp Fiction, "Do you read the Bible?"  "No, I read GCOR."  Alrighty then.

He started drinking that railroad issued Kool-Aid that was given to him by the folks at the old Indiana and Ohio Railway and has been sipping on it ever since.  We all know that railroaders will never admit to liking trains. That would be a cardinal sin in the railroading circle. But we do have our favorite engines that we love to run.  His was the I&O 87, an ex-C&O GP30.  Here she is waiting at the Newburgh and South Shore's Marcelline Yard awaiting mechanical work.

I'm still looking for that locomotive that I like to run.......
