    On my way to the GATS show yesterday I saw #8526 pulling 4 tank cars. Would've liked to stop and snap a phot, but, to stop on I76 is like playing russian roulette.

    I'm curious! Why is this engine a sought after subject for photos?

    Hmmmm, now you have me curious. I didn't know this was a sought after engine. I was cruising along and there it was. Gotta check the CSX archives now.

    Don't think it's sought after for photos, just moose might have been interested in taking a shot. Just a regular old SD50.

    He's probably like me... it doesn't have to be a "special" unit to get a picture,
    any unit will do! :D
