    This from my contact at the C&O historical society:

    This was a special paint job, done by caboose expert Dwight Jones of Columbus, OH, and approved by CSX honoring the 20th Anniversary of the Chessie System Safety Caboose program. There were a dozen or so of these cabooses painted up in the early 1970s with different slogans reminding employees to "be safe".

    Back in the early 1990s CSX divided itself up into Business Units focused on particular regions of its vast system. The C&O Business Unit encompassed virtually all of the old C&O lines and they looked to history for a logo befitting the new Unit by simply modifying the old C&O For Progress logo.

    One of these cabs also had a C&OHS logo applied briefly when our Annual Conference was held in Columbus, I think in 1993. One was used frequently out of Parsons Yard in Columbus on the local switching job. I guess there is at least one still around since that bottom photo was taken in Feb. of this year.

    Ya I caught it coming up from on the Columbus line in Fostoria on a local. It would've been nice to see it in C&O blue but then again just seeing the logo is nice.

    It would be great if there was a manufacturer that came out with one.

    That 903180 is definitely a rarity. When I worked for the South Branch Valley, CSX kept a caboose in the wye at Green Spring, WV for a shoving platform. They often left it on the end of the train (and the EOTD, too) they shoved in to our interchange and we would have to kick it out of the way somewhere. It was CSXT 900077 and was a really faded blue with yellow ends, no idea if it was old C&O colors or not. Several shots of it on RRPictureArchives.
