Railfan & Railroad
APRIL 2014: The Maryland Midland had long been a fan favorite due to its attractive paint scheme and matched locomotive fleet. Editor Steve Barry witnesses the transition from MMID blue to G&W orange. Also, David Baer takes us back to 1993 for a visit to the busy KCS main linein Arkansas and Missouri. Christian Goepel explores the many sides of San Francisco's MUNI system in the first of our Great Railroad Photography series. All this and more in the April issue of Railfan & Railroad!
