Unit 100 of the White Pass and Yukon backs down to the docks from the shops in Skagway. These units have some rear visibility issues!

Good Lord that's narrow guage and then some! ^^^ He said it best. Is this a modified E or F unit or something?

Nope... pure GE.

I think I'd be more concerned with the precarious footing resulting from running full-width equipment on 36" gauge tracks than having a good rear view!

You don't see full-on rear shots of the White Pass' "90 Class" units very often. Nice pic!

Actually it's not as unbalanced as you might think. Read Hoyt's :iconherrdrayer: comment under [link]

Why in USA so many locos have only one cabine? Aren't any problems with maneuvers on the station?
In Europe every diesel or electric - as I remember - have two cabines...

Very few USA locomotives go to stations like there are in Europe. Passenger service is pitiful. Those that do have often have control cabs in the last car of the train.

Also you will see a lot of US trains have 2 units coupled back-to-back so they have a cab facing each way.
