it speaks well for the sheet metal fabrication section at Lagrange back in early 1970's, eh?

If CSX were smart they would restore that scheme to it's full grandure.

Still puttering along as of 9/08. That circa late 1990s paint on the cab looks worst than the original paint.

She's on her way (or already at Waycross) for work, and paint is scheduled :(

It is now in fresh YN3. I posted a pic on Trainorders. 2667 was scheduled for painting too (last SBD unit).

She looks nice in new paint, hopefully its a sign she'll be around for a little while longer. The way she was before, I always assumed she very well could be the next unit on the retirement list.

Be cool if she got preserved someday. I believe she's basically a unrebuilt SD40? That's pretty rare on a Class 1 these days, combined with carrying her original paintscheme so long, makes her seem more special than your typical SD40.

I was curious if anyone could post a update for this unit in light of the economic downturn that has led to widespread storage of units and many newer Dash 2's being let go by carriers, including CSX? Last updates I saw still had her in service down in Florida back in March.

I know her and her three SD40 sisters were in MOW service as of her repainting and are to be retired when a major failure happens, but I hope it doesn't happen for a while.

Thanks
