Robert,
No need to swear <g>. Actually, I've seen SD40T-2s with white handrails,
particularly in Pentrex's 1987 vintage Denver & Rio Grande Western video
and some of the GP30 shots in the Diesel Era article also have white
handrails. In fact, seeing the white handrails in that video is really
what started my wondering. Something else from that video also got my
brain wondering ... namely when did the Rio Grande stop using cabooses. In
the video, trains pulled by pre-SD50, e.g. SD40T-2, GP40, GP40-2, power
appear with cabeese, but not those pulled by SD50s.
Regarding the Pentrex video, does anyone know the background to it? For
an "overview" of the entire system, the video spends an inordinate amount
of time covering the Moffat Route and then gives only brief coverage to
Utah, Tennessee Pass, and the Joint Line. Seems rather curious that an
overview of the system should be so lopsided. And, for that matter, how
did the Pentrex folks wrangle a ride in the cab?

Keith
