    Today I received my March/April 2019 issue of Diesel Era magazine, Volume 30, Number 2.

    Yes, they usually do run a month or two behind the calendar! Late or not, it is my favorite railroad magazine. I have every issue.

    Anyway, this issue has a nice feature article on the Frisco's 25 EMD GP40-2 locomotives, SLSF 750-774. Most every unit is pictured, all color, most in full Mandarin orange and white livery, but some with the stenciled BN numbers on the cab side, and some in full BN gangreen and black. Anyway, a good article for us, pages 18 to 34.

    This is an issue for you Tom!

    I am glad to see them do another article on Frisco power. It has been a while. I would like to see them do a full bore feature on our SLSF E7A (EA7) and E8A units.

    Karl and I talked a while back about getting together and helping them do such an article.

    That is great!

    Going to have to check into that magazine.

    Hope you and Karl can get something going.

    I would certainly like to see a couple of pictures of the elusive E8A SLSF 2009 "Jet Pilot"!
