Pacific Harbor Line Series:
The Pacific Harbor Line, the workhorse of the LA Harbor. These black/white one's are part of the low emission line of locomotives for the move towards a greener port. Black and Shiny as tar with striking graphics, they don’t blend in, they stand out. Not graceful looking, they look like they mean business. The back end diagonals point down, the front point up to distinguish front from rear when seen head on. Its side panel graphics angling forward. So a nod of beautiful work to the designers of these burly beasts of burden.
This locomotive is pulling a string of empty intermodal rail cars.171
