Funny how some repaints are hard to come by but we've gotten three good shots of the 7660 in 36 hours :lol:

Thanks for the report :)

All three weren't previously known to us, and we had just found the 1561 before you posted...almost 4 for 4!

Update out at the end of the month as always!

So, to bring up something interesting of note, noticed CSX RCPHG6 #9303 (C30-7) in full YN2, with it's hood doors open (prime mover well visible) chilling on the west side of the Collinwood Shop complex this morning, coupled to a GP30 RDSLUG. Thought all of these had been shipped south and or scrapped. Is it still on the roster?

A C30-7 or a B30-7? Thought all the 6 axle Dash 7's were long gone.

Also worth noting, pics circulating of a B36-7 at the Huntington shops (?) being repainted into Chessie System paint that was also (supposedly) Mechanically rebuilt. Any ideas where it's headed?

CSX's Huntington Shops has cosmetically restored a retired B36-7 into Chessie System livery, built as #8272.

It is headed to the Lake Shore Railway Museum.
