Re: CSX purchasing 4-axle power from UP to ease shortage.

I had heard of the GP22ECOs, but thought they were another form of rebuild program. But you and I both agree that the B40-8's are a lot cheaper. That is the main reason behind CSX's decision to purchase the 52 units. Also another reason is maintenance - CSX already has a huge fleet of six-axle Dash...

Re: CSX Business Train Sideswiped - Moncrief

Caption writer was in la-la land. Obviously the unit was NOT on its side as stated, and it says the incident happened Saturday the 14th and the units will be shipped out on Sunday the 14th. If the caption is correct that 9992 was the leader, it does not appear the trailing unit would even have been...
