Brand New Pennsy SD45 by classictrains Brand New Pennsy SD45 by classictrains
One of the advantages of living in Chicago's west suburbs in the 1960's was the proximity to EMD's factory. Not only to see the scrap that came in but the new that went out. This brand new Pennsy SD45 is sitting on the interchange track connecting the Harbor with the Q, waiting to be transferred east This was the engine that taught me that Pennsy's color actually was a shade of green!

Great picture, but... to be clear; this was taken in '66? I see the copyright dates of '07 and '09... Just curious...

Taken in 1966 but scanned and first posted in 2007 then colour adjusted, cropped and reposted in 2009. Just like a book. It's not about when the words were written but about when they were published for public consumption.

If you hadn't said that they were green, I would have believed that they were either a dark almost navy blue, or black :lol: Unless of course it's the screen on this laptop that's making it look that way.

getting colours right on screen is almost impossible since everyone's screen is set differently... in this case... after a few months in the sun in service it became indistinguishable from dirty black.

This was the only time I ever saw a Pennsy engine that i could honestly say "it's green."

I guessed that it would be the screen to blame, so no worries about it. I get the same problem when moving between the PC and the laptop.

She "was" headed for the Pennsy in Chicago. When this picture was taken there still was a Pennsy. (I'm not sure if you noticed but every one of my devArt pictures has the year taken at the bottom.)

Yuppers :icondragonnod1: Now the Ducky notices :icondragonlaugh: 1966!! I just assumed that when I saw BRAND NEW I thought maybe like a local short-line railroad had it painted up :icondragonkeke: The Ducky is too young to remember the real Pennsy going through Trenton, but I do remember the imfamous PennCentral :rofl: and all the mismanagement that occurred :icondragonweep:

You're not the first person to focus on the picture and miss the text. (Not a bad thing actually.) I hope my comment didn't offend you.
