Here are the second ones for tonight! As said before, I can post specifications later on.
Feel free to discuss / comment any or all of these units [locomotives].

* GE's [General Electric] Model P-42-8 [4000 HP]. Taken at Various points, circa 1995-98:



Shot of Me [Scott35] in Cab of Model P-40-8 [AKA "Dash 8"] at the right hand side control panel - the traditional Engineer's side. Taken at ATSF's Barstow Yard circa 1995.



Front right, or Fireman's side view of P-42-8, taken at SP's Paso Robles Yard, circa 1998.
This unit is very similar to the P-40-8 "Dash 8" unit, in which I am shown inside the cab [above photo].


* GM's Electro-Motive Division [EMD] model GP-60M. Taken at BNSF's 3rd District near Fullerton, CA. and near the old Advance Transformer California Distribution Center. Circa 04/ 2001:



Left, or Engineer's side - front view



Left, or Engineer's side - rear view
Note: Paint Scheme is "Silver with Red Warbonnet".

Naw, you look like a "good ol' boy", fairly normal...

Now if you had been in suit and tie... (Or a pink tu-tu...) that would be scary...
