Gary's Rio Grande page still soldiers on, serving up a dose of Grande photos that are irreplaceable memories of an era that's gone forever. No doubt in 30 years we'll remember the days before PTC, days when antiquated polluters like the SD-70 were commonplace, and when there were four class-I freight railroads instead of just two. That's more than enough justification for you and me to get outside tomorrow and fill up our cameras with photographs of these fast-flying days.
