PC: Re: PC SD7 soldiers on for TRRA

Can I nominate this unit for "ugliest chop nose ever performed on a
locomotive"?  It sure shows how having the proportions off just a little
bit can screw up the basic EMD design....   (why leave it so high anyhow? I
thought the point of a chop was for visibility...   the windows on this
unit look more like the ones blanked out on RS3's and SW's).

Sure surprised me though, I figured all of PC's SD7/9's were cut up a long
time ago.
