Dates:8/22/1987 - 12/31/1989
Album Info:I first started taking photos in August 1987. The camera that I had at the time was a Kodak instamatic. It used 126 type film, and the photos were only three and a half, by three and a half. I'm not too sure about the dates on some of these photos. Some of the photos where the locomotive was new, I was able to look up in a locomotive directory, and at least get an idea for when it was built. These photos were taken in 1987, 1988, and 1989. The month and day with some, I'm not sure about. Even the year too, but these photos covered these years. I do remember some of the months and years for some of these photos, and I do at least have all of the locations correct.

Soo Line 4403
Title:  Soo Line 4403
Description:  This locomotive has had four different paint designs, if you will. This engine was orginally numbered 793. Soo Line had ten of these, which were numbered 790-799. These followed the last of the 700 series SD40-2s, (789), and were in between the U30Cs, 800-809. Later they were numbered into the 4400 series. As you can see, it has the red Soo, which was later changed to black, which then was painted into the candy apple red, and is now in the Canadian Pacific design. Also, I think this was the first Soo Line locomotive to have been painted into at the time, the new candy apple red design.
