Switche engine moving by East Tower in Amarillo, Texas

It was late in the day when engine 2129 and another GP7 paused at East Tower in Amarillo on February 15, 1988. I think the tower was built in 1908. The better time for pictures would have been about noon, but East Tower was near the end of its life when I took these pictures.
