Below is an updated location update for the remaining EMD units in YN2. It has only 31 members now, having lost the last SD70M last month. Please note that while considered fairly reliable, this information isn't always 100% up-to-date, and keep in mind that locomotives are mobile, they do move around, by definition.

These were checked on August the 8th.

Well, it looks like EHH is storing SD40-2's also, by the looks of that trace. Figures, I haven't seen any at all on the main line trains like I used to. It sucks not seeing very many EMDs on CSX nowadays.

Most of the SD40-2s mentioned have been in storage or OOS for some time before Hunter showed up.

While reading Facebook earlier today, I observed that a journalist company wrote that at least 21 of those had wound up being sold. My theory is that they could be the older dash 8 units with outdated electronics. Does anyone know anything about this, or can shed some light on it?

Most of them are ex Conrail Units, and so it sounds like the Conrail units are either generally in worse shape, or don't have something CSX's own orders did. Yes the electronics are pretty outdated, same as the rest of the locomotive. It should not be understated how fuel inefficient these units are compared to their modern cousins. Look for most Dash8s to be wiped from Class One rosters in the next 5 years.

Does anyone know about rumors swirling regarding the UP Cold Connect that CSX handles (likely Q090/Q091) going to NS?

Dunno just how recently it was painted but ES44DC #5408 was leading Q326 this morning looking fresh and resplendent in YN3b.

One of now ten 5400s now in YN3b, most painted this year. When 5459 gets painted, the one running around in primer paint that Waycross started to paint but the paint shop was shut down before It was completed, it will make eleven. Other than 5408, 5401,06,07,19,43,49,54,61,71 are also in YN3b. 5461 is the Seaboard System #1 sticker unit.

Once again this evening, the media did not disappoint. Below, we have another interesting, but not good news CSX article. Honestly, I am having trouble seeing how they're going to survive the EHH era.

CSX 5459, the unit that has been running around for a couple of months in primer paint after the Waycross paint shops were closed down while 5459 was being prepped for painting, has just shown up in fresh YN3b paint on the Folkston Ga. web cam within the last hour.
