Throwback Thursday: Push-Pull

On July 04, 1998, ACR 1755 and 1761 are operating in push-pull mode on the east end of a passenger special at Green Bay, WI.

By Peter Mumby.

At the time of this photo (July 04, 1998) the Algoma Central Railway was under Wisconsin Central control.  This would explain why FP9A 1755 and F9B 1761 were available to operate in push-pull mode at one end of a passenger special powered by ex-MILW steam locomotive number 261.  These trains were running out of Green Bay, WI, and the photo was taken just west of the Green Bay depot.
