Remarks: There is nothing like the sound of a vintage geep. Here we see four classic Soo
GP9s featuring former passenger GP 557. Note the torpeedo air tanks. This clip is for sure a smoke record! The units would build up carbon after sitting quiet for most of the weekend and head east on Sunday morning spewing that classic blueish white EMD smoke.

Soo Geeps, two cabooses used for EOT devices and no graffiti on any of the rail cars, even the box cars. True top quality classic stuff. Thanks for sharing.

If I hadn't have read the caption, this could have been mistaken for a Chicago Central & Pacific video.
