In fact, EMD may have been on to something here. There is a continuing market for quick deployment, mobile, standby or primary power.

On some sort of Bi-centennial consist. Very striking. July 6, 1975 - i was at Fort Hood then, a JAG Captain, assigned to the 1st Cav Div SJA Section. Went over the Temple every now and then to see what was coming through and grab a slide or two.
 
Santa Fe was running a unit sulfur train from Rustler Springs to the coast then, usually F45s IIRC for power, with a mid-train helper, controlled by equipment in an F7B converted to a control car. Seems like it was usually three of the F45s (in Blue and yellow, not warbonnet), tanks of liquid sulfur,  and the mid-train set of locomotives and the control car. I don't think I ever got a decent picture of that train.

A bit rusty and weather-worn, perhaps, but this old CP unit more than deserves preservation.....

Examples of CNJ clerestory and arch roof combos.
 
All combos on the CNJ were removed from service with the ALDENE PLAN of 1967.
 
Note that CNJ's combos were equipped with vestibules at the baggage end.....
