I was working on a book on Electro-Motive Division early General Purpose diesels. Specifically the GP7s, GP9s, GP18s and GP20s.
I needed photos of GP18s to illustrate the book, and at the time New York Susquehanna & Western was still regularly operating their small fleet of three GP18s, which the railroad had bought new from EMD.
So, photographer Pat Yough and I drove to central New York state and sought out these vintage locomotives.
I made these Fujichrome color slides at Cortland, NY, where the NYS&W operated a portion of the old Lackawanna.
Last night I scanned the slides, then processed the images in Adobe Photoshop to correct for color, adjust highlight and shadow areas and make other minor adjustments to contrast etc. Below I display both the uncorrected and corrected scans to show the differences between them.
Outside my window it is snowing, so looking at photos made on a bright Spring morning is a refreshing change of scene!
