300 Series Plaque

Postby Engineer Spike » Wed Jul 08, 2015 1:09 pm

I was eating at Bubbles Restaurant in Mechanicville. It is right along the D&H Colonie Main. Much of the decor is related to Mechanicville history, and more specifically B&M and D&H. One picture is either a P4 or R1 coming out of West Portal. Another is a wooden plaque with a 300 series GP40-2. I was wondering, was this was a PR handouts when these units came? It might go along with one of my previous questions about their new color scheme. Obviously a big deal was made of their arrival.

B&M parked a 300 on a siding by Congress Street in Portland for public inspection, so I'm assuming they did this in other cities, as well.
