While at the New Lenox metra station i noticed something weird on the side of 206 as it got closer to me and stoped i was shocked to see it was a GE sticker on an EMD locomotive. It was not a little one it was the kind you whould find of the side of a Amtrak P42. And theres a picture of it some were on the web but for some reason i cant seem to find it again.

And it has a bunch of stuff written under that. And it looks just like the sticker on the side of 206. None of us can be shure what 206's sticker says untill one of us see's it and reads it but at least now we have a pretty good ideal what 206's sticker might say. By the way i have not seen 206 for a while. ITS TRYING TO SNEAKY
