Blanco and the Bandit

Soo Line GP40 No. 2014 and Kansas City Southern SD40 No. 633 sit at the Joint Agency Yard in Kansas City, Missouri, on September 14, 1990. I used to joke with people that I shot enough former Milwaukee Road ‘bandits’ that I could show them a whole slide tray of ‘em—and it’s true—even though I didn’t like them, I still shot them. A lot of people didn’t like KCS’s white scheme (if you can call it that) either. Sometimes the passage of time has a way of making something more desirable to see. But does anyone really want to see photos of ‘bandits?’
