    Does this look a little Dash-8ish?

    I think so... Funny, but I have seen more standard cab Dash 8's in the past 3 months than the whole entire year prior....

    I haven't seen any/many of them, so I assumed they are a "work in progress"....

    Spotted one in Grafton, WV last week parked nose to nose with a GP38-2 and all of the long hood doors open. I was driving by, didn't get a good read on the number, 4002 maybe?

    CSX SD40-3 Rebuilds

    Some of the slugs units built on GP30 and GP35 bodies come through Gettysburg. They come over the Catoctin Mountains from Hagerstown yard. They service the industries and small yards here in Gettysburg and in Hnover going to and from York. The trains have anywhere from three to five units depending on weight, A number of which are the 8600 series SD50 and SD50-2's.

    I have heard of sightings as high as # 4025, so CSX must be turning them out!

    That is one UGLY looking cab on those 40-3s. But hey you know, it is a kitbashers DREAM! I might just have to try and tackle this one.
