Washington Eastern GP30M 2422 basks in the late afternoon sun at Reardan WA late afternoon on 5/26/2021. This was the end of a long day of running out on the Geiger spur as well as a light power move to Reardan for work train service spreading ballast.
Additionally, 2422 endured several hours of hand scrubbing to remove graffiti which was applied at Cheney. Fortunately the fine paint applied years ago at Santa Fe's Cleburn TX shop survived this abuse with no noticeable damage. Long live the blue and yellow!
