A toasty GE shooting flames in Atlanta,GA

I've seen this very scene several times with the old GE locomotives. I will never forget the time when I was just a little kid, a CNW early AC traction engine was just spewing black smoke like a steam locomotive and making some weird engine noises. I bet it blew up eventually!

Lucky it didn't light up under the bridge! It sounded like the second engine was not firing on all cylinders. Maybe it was dumping raw fuel in the exhaust when then lit up.
