actually a silver charger, but bullet sounds better xD

thank god for the a55's auto HDR feature, it helped get a lot of detail out of these trains on this bright, glary day :)

Taken at the museum of transportation in St. Louis, Missouri

It's interesting that the museum paired this unit with heavy-weight passenger cars, given the loco and the train it was designed to pull were meant to replace them.

The only remaining car from the train it used to pull is in Western Australia.

I don't think its wrong or anything. It would be unreasonable to expect that there are many cars from that era, much less from that specific train, available for display. I just find this type of pairing visually odd.

I managed to find a couple of pictures of Silver Charger pulling older style passenger cars later on in its life.
