Today's prototype pic of the day may seem a bit random, but it's not. The reason I chose this picture of ATSF #611 from back in 1994 is because I actually have the HO scale model of this same locomotive. It was part of my collection as a kid and now sits on my bookshelf at work as a nice little display piece along with the Sante Fe boxcar I purchased recently. Its kind of neat to see the real life versions of one of my models like this.
