Re: PC: Hump Engines

That RSD5 also had the nose from an RS1 - apparently it was a wreck prior
to conversion.  I don't think it was the only EMD-powered RSD15 either,
they switched with several of them at Dewitt and I'm pretty sure much like
a large number of RS2/3's they got 567 transplants.  Eventually the 12/15's
became the slugs themselves -
