No, I don't think it's a mini-FRED, but I'm not sure what that thing is to the right of the license plate...care to enlighten us?

Open door / crummy paint job. I had really sweet light for this one, but my hopes of having a fantastic shot were dashed when I saw what was leading.

Some may remember my slightly on-topic quote from a couple years back:
All FREDs are EOTs, but not all EOTs are FREDs.

Nikos, those are oil headlights as commonly used on steam engines in the UK. They are still used on mainline steam trips, though note the black painted obligatory modern high-intensity headlight here as well.

Have not got any locos on RP with a horrible modern tail light stuck on the back but do have some with red lights / blinds.

Would have also preferred this one to have at least some of its (white) lights on.......

A caboose (or "shoving platform") desecrated by a FRED.

I don't have many, though, since until recently, my main rail line, the Transcon, didn't use DPUs. Though, the first time I saw one on an intermodal, I nearly crapped myself. "What the fudge are these doing on my rail line?!"

Wow, that would be like making your old and tired wife wear a t-shirt with your young mistress's photo on it.

Gotta say AWESOME SHOT to Burghman for this photo. Too bad it's ruined, though...
