Martin,

Great pictures and great to see the Panama Railroad running again. I understand it's not operated by the Panama Canal Company, or is it? Don't know if you are a railroad buff, but can you identify the locomotives? Looks like EMD FP40?

I used to live in the Canal Zone back in the 1960s, first in Cocoli, Curundu and finally Albrook AFB. I remember the old Alco RS-5 diesel locomotives in a dark green with yellow strip. We used to ride the train from Balboa to Gamboa visiting friends there on the "other side."

By the way, how is the Canal expansion project coming along? Got any pictures?

Hal
