    I did a search... lots of photos of the same unit... seems to be an Ohio local unit. One photo said the local crews repainted it!

    I only wish that management would understand how nice that paint looks!

    This might sound goofy, but the first thought that came to mind was that CSX had the caboose painted so that they could legally claim that they had not abandoned the B&O "trademark". This way if they were challenged in court over use of "fallen flags", they would have a leg to stand on and this would validate their charging "use fees" to model railroad manufacturers, etc...

    I too found a site that says the caboose was painted by the local crews. Good for them. Glad somebody in CSX has a thing for history.

    Hopefully, they won't develop the same "thing" for history that UP has :)
