Slots 5602 - 5899 are free, so IF (big IF) CSX decides to purchase the retired NS B32-8 units, or more former UP B40-8 units, they would be filling the 5800 series number slots. I hear CSX will be moving eight B40-8 units a week to Waycross from East St Louis, IL.From what I've heard talking to people around the yard, Engineers absolutely HATE the B40s. On the road it's not a big deal, but they've all told me old GE power is just utter junk, especially in the yard. You'll go to notch up and instead of seeing your amperage kick up almost right away like old EMDs do, you slowly hear the engine start to rev and then the amp meter finally starts to creep up. As for going forward to reverse of visa versa, I believe the exact words of my Engineer were "You go to change directions in one of those things and you can go eat a sandwich before you start moving again."
