    I see that CSX has a secret new locomotive that they're working on. It's on the left side in this photo, sitting beside a CSX pumpkin! Actually, it's a shot from the B&O Train Museum's Steam Days Weekend. That CSX loco on the right was TRAINS magazine loco of the year or something like that. It was put in MOW service, and when done, donated to the Museum.

    It was a beautiful day here in Baltimore Saturday. Spring like, high near 70 (as opposed to today which is about 54 degrees out). So I ran down to Bayview again. There was a lot of activity- too bad I didn't bring my video camera. There are some days you can sit here all day and not nary a thing- and this is one of the main drags to Pennsylvania!!

    It was unusual to still see a loco in Conrail paint around here. I'm trying to take as many "Bright Future" locos as I can, since they're getting rarer. I like the all blue- but I wish CSX would run these through the wash racks once in awhile!

    And here's a shot of yours truly posed with a geep that was on a siding. This poor old geep was looking pretty haggard. You don't see too many 4 wheel truck locos anymore. The old B&O, which is whose tracks these once were, were big on 4 wheel geeps because they didn't think 6 wheel power could handle the curves.

    Nice catch... I caught that unit leading a CSX train not too long ago... hard to imagine the old "stealth" scheme still survives...

    I caught this same unit last November... CSX has a lot of variety of paint on GP40-2's since they have so many of them out there.

    I know some of the GP40-2s were lucky enough to get the "Dark Future" treatment. Course even Chessie wasn't all that quick to re-paint all of its prior roads equipment. Some B&O/C&O units made it up to the CSX age. There was one case I read about where CSX was having a money crunch of some sort- it couldn't afford new paint. Some old B&O blue was still around, so they painted them in that!

    Here's another old scheme- I think this one came after "stealth", with the blue fuel tank and trucks. Look at that back deck. You could put patio furniture there and have lunch! What is this? An SD-40-2? My diesel spotters guide is in the car.

    I think it is an SD40-2. Not sure.

    It's a SD40-2, originally built as Louisville & Nashville 8068.

    I live in E. Central IL., but get over to Terre Haute, IN some. I was up by the old NYC yard on the N. Side and got a photo of these two.

    We live along the old PRR Vandalia track age, so we see mostly CSX along with a lot of other road names

    Two GP38-2's with different history... # 2505 was an original Seaboard Coast Line unit ( # 505). The GP38-2's were renumbered in the CSX era by simply adding a "2" in front of their number. The other GP38-2 appmight be an ex-CR unit.

    You are quite welcome! I came up the "old fashioned" way and learned the various features, etc., but I guess you could probably Google it today and get a lot more info!

    I'm not good with it, either. Sadly, most diesels look alike to me (in a generic way), and if one has to look at the number of louvers or where the battery box is, I'm lost. Thanks to digital, I can sometimes get away with zooming in to read what is stenciled on the cab.

    I like the friendliness of this forum- it's informative without being snotty. If you get my drift.
