GBW Alco Smoking It Up in 1981
GBW 314 (C424), originally built for the Kewaunee, Green Bay, & Western and added to the parent's roster when the subsidiary was merged in 1969, emits a trademark Alco display of smoke as it accelerates a freight at a now-forgotten location near Green Bay. From the sequence of the numbers on the slides, I suspect this was a boat train headed for the car ferry connections at Kewaunee, WI. The sun is on the wrong side for a boat train returning to Green Bay.
