    CSX 1992 (aka7812) southbound at Etowah TN November 1992. the plastic holder on the side of the cab was for the presidential seal. It was only placed in the holder when the engine was pulling a POTUS special and removed when it was not. Wish I could have caught it with the seal in place but this was my only encounter with this unit before she was returned to her regular CSX Hockey Stick paint scheme.

    Yes, that's VERY cool BNSF Fan. I never knew about this unit; never seen in any photo before.

    Thanks guys. During the 1992 presidential campaign between Clinton and Bush Sr., Bill Clinton did a whistle stop campaign tour along many CSX lines and this unit was chosen from units being delivered to CSX at that time. It was painted like this and carried the number 1992 on the number boards and front of the unit but I read that inside the cab, it had the number 7812 as that would have been it's as delivered number had it not been picked for this service. I saw pics where it was renumbered back to 7812 while still in this paint scheme but the unit was eventually repainted into a traditional CSX scheme for the time.

    The AC6000's never really lived up to their billing but they sure looks sharp with the yellow lettering outlined in blue. CSX Tilford Yard Atlanta GA July 4, 1999
