About myself

SDL39 581

    This is my little place for a SDL39 known as 581

This photo show the Milwaukee, Wis. Shops of the Milwaukee road. Look in the bottom corner of the photo, Notice the many damaged loco's around a turntable, these loco's are to become drywall screws. (That's a Joke)

The 581 was wrecked twice in her lifetime. The first time she was reportedly wrecked was in 1972. On March 26th she was the lead unit on a train sitting in the hole near Walked SD. A unit coal train came around the corner and one of it's cars picked the switch. The crew was trapped in the locomotive because it was covered by lumber of a derailed car.
581's last and final blow came in 1983 when she collided with a gravel truck in Sacred heart, MN.
The 140 and 163 were repaired, but the poor 581 was scraped. At least in by dreams she still pulls freight.

Just a little dreaming going on!

Same loco, Different Dream!


I would like to thank Fred Hyde, Keith Nuttbrock, and Michael Bingen for all of their wonderful information.
