SOO 6035 & 6047 (SD60s) in both red and white are in Anderson. Very hard to shoot near Harvest market!

Date unknown - but probaby in the past three years.
This Ferromex unit was caught at the Pitt Street crossing just off of 32nd Street. I took it with a throw-a-way camera I kept in my car. I forgot about it.
