    Two CSX shots, the first taken 08/14/2019 in Clinton, SC on the former SAL and the second taken 10/06/2019 of a helper at Enoree, SC on the former ACL. The upstate region of SC is quite hilly and CSX stations a helper here. Both units are GE AC44CWs.

    The finest November weather greets the westbound Empire Builder on a frigid day where the mercury curled up in the bulb. Wind chills made the air feel like a chilly -10°F.

    They ended up destroying it totally when the operation shut down and walked away from it. Vandals and metal thieves stripped all the copper wiring off and anything else of value that they could pry away. It has since been cut up.

    Cute little GP20. But she sure has a lot of bling added!:p

    Kinda looks like it got kitbashed with some GE 70 tonner parts here (cab, part of the hood, trucks), EMD MRS-1 parts there (other part of the hood)... If that was ever a Baldwin, it might be in frame only.

    If thats' the case. it's one heck of a Frankensteinn job!:eek::LOL:

    But it would be neat to kitbash...
