ARR 3007
Title:  ARR 3007
Description:  ARR 3007 leads a rare'ish weekend Whittier freight on the western flanks of Anchorage. ARR 3007 (and sister unit ARR 3008) were, at the time, the last GP40-2s to be re-painted in the Baby MAC scheme. They're also the only two to receive this style of nose herald, something to take note of for you modelers out there.
