Two ex-Rio Grande SD50s are spliced by an espee tunnel motor at Preston, Kansas, in November 1999. The 5106 (leading) is the ex-5512, and the trailing unit (5110) is the ex-5516. #5106 has had the plow changed, and the notch in the nose has been filled in where the Mars light used to be. SP had just plated over the spot when the lights were removed. The middle unit is SP 8328, an SD40T-2. Brad Hoeme photo.
