PC: RE: EP-5's/ E40C's

Mr. Kermit,

	After having the opportunity to operate them < for, oh, too short of
time >, I would appreciate some more shots. I am trying at this late date to
collect shots of as many of the different locomotives there were THAT I
OPERATED. I have been going back through my "time book"s and getting the
number(s) and date(s) I ran which engine. Being from Baltimore, I ran mostly
electric motors and very few diesels until Conrail KILLED them. It is a real
shame they did, too, because the throttles on the motors had 21 to 28 or
more notches with which to fine tune how you were operating your train.
Desease-uls only have the AAR standard 8 notches of power. For example
E-44's gave you three notches to choose for every equivalent 1 notch on a
desease-ul. Thanks.

Earl Karper, Sr.
