I had asked if the GP60's had been repainted, but can't find any pics (yet). It is interesting to note from these I found on the CSX photos web site: http://www.trainweb.org/csxphotos/photos/GP60/6899emd.jpg

This unit was renumbered with white numbers, whereas most others have the "yellow/orange". Is anyone else seeing white renumberings being done?

For those of you who might be interested, here is a photo from my website of the CSX GP60's from 1986 when they were doing their original EMD Demonstrator duties.

Kevin,
That's a great shot of the GP60's in their "better days". Thanks for sharing it http://www.trainboard.com/smile.gif!

On that first photo (6899), is it an optical illusion, or is the walkway badly bent (where the guy is standing). He does not look that heavy http://www.trainboard.com/biggrin.gif

Alan,
I thought the same thing when I looked at the picture.... I guess that might be why he is coupled to the cars with the front of the loco http://www.trainboard.com/biggrin.gif
