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?


if you google CSX RCPHG6 #9303 you find a like to Kyle M's imgrum page, and a pic of the 9303 and the slug mother in the same spot from 2014. i'm willing to bet its going nowhere fast.

Anyone know where the best spot for pics of this engine is? I'd love to see it.

It's a B30-7
I went to Taco Bell and tried to spend a $2 bill, and the cashier had no idea what it was and called the cops.

New repaint for us! Starting to see several ES40DCs beginning to cycle into paint. I suppose it's about time, the oldest ones are approaching 13 years old now - 5200, the class unit, was built in 2005.

I thought so. Didn't recall the Wild Mary having a sticker prior.

I do not have a photo to back up this claim, however CSX 156, the AC4400CW wrecked, rebuilt and painted into YN2 paint in Mexico has apparently been repainted again into YN3b

Hey, that one next to it looks like trash, but let's repaint the one YN2 unit we have that looks better than all of them!

That is a new one! Couple of ES44AHs now making their way to paint...interesting thing is, this one wasn't a wreck repair, as far as we know. Most of the GEVO repaints have been wreck/blow-up repair related.
