Happy Fourth of July!
In the sprit of the holiday, here are some pictures of Adirondack Scenic Railroad #105, a G.E. 44-tonner. I took them in Utica on March 26, 2005.
I love 44-tonners in general, and this paint scheme is pretty cool. The engine came to the A.S.R. painted in red, white, and blue and they only patch-applied their emblems on the cab sides. My research didn't reveal who owned the engine when it was painted R/W/B.
Per this website, the engine was later acquired by the Southern Railroad of New Jersey in the spring of 2005 and subsequently repainted into its original NYO&W gray and yellow scheme. I was very lucky to get these pictures. Pictures of the NYO&W repainting process can be seen here.
