GMTX SW1001 98

GMTX SW1001 No. 98 shown in the Newport News, VA Engine Terminal (shot with permission) ready to depart back to GMTX. The engine had been on a 6 month lease to the Northrop Grumman Shipyard as an experiment to see how larger power would handle the turns on property. The Shipyard has small 65T GE's, which already struggle around some of the curves, and from what I was told, the SW1001 was on the ground more often than she was on the rail.
