We were waiting for you to say that. You didn't disappoint.


May I ask why?[/quote]

Only because when the C&O Sticker Unit was on the retirement list, we were betting you would be the first one to comment on it.[/quote]

Wow that was dumb. I was actually hoping for something that wasn't a waste of time on your part.

I didn't see it in here so here goes:

The group of preproduction SD70ACe's that everybody derides all the time have been retired and sold to Progress Rail. Units were already shipped to Mayfield.

Indeed, we'd heard it but have yet to confirm it. Do you have a firm source? (PM if necessary)

CSX Locomotive Roster Update As of 01 Jan 2018

Welcome to 2018! For this beginning-of-year update, covering changes we were able to find and confirm in December, we’ve got the largest raft of retirements we’ve ever reported at once, at nearly 200! We’ve been able to confirm the remainder of the 7300 series and all of the SD70AEs as gone. Additionally, we’ve learned that SD60s of all three variants are beginning to be retired, with plans to wipe the whole fleet soon – so any out there still running are on borrowed time – at least as CSX power.

Therefore in this update we’ll cover the retirements of the 7300s, the SD70AEs, and the SD60/I/Ms. Yes, while the SD60s are not yet all gone, our numbers will reflect this change as one move now, since tracking them each individually just isn’t feasible. Note that the SD70AEs are confirmed as going back to Progress, and the GEs are going to Larry’s Truck, in some sort of deal with GE for what to do with them next. Some are showing up as GECX lease units, but note that LTE/GE have amassed hundreds of C40-8s and C40-8Ws from CSX, UP and NS, with more on the way – potentially the rest of CSX’s Dash8s could serve their last miles in 2018.

Also one SW1500, the 1105, which was previously used as a training unit at the REDI center in Georgia, has been retired off the roster and sent via sale or lease to the Lehigh Valley Railroad.

8724 must not be retired yet, because it was part of a consist on a Wheeling train within the last three days.
You're wrong, and here's why.

Yes because...

Yes, while the SD60s are not yet all gone, our numbers will reflect this change as one move now, since tracking them each individually just isn’t feasible.

Wouldn't surprise me if Caterpillar takes those ACE's back to try and fix the bugs at some point. Could be an easy way for them to make some money on units that are still being made today.

Saw 8729 on the point of Q 327 on Monday 1-9-18. They might be on the chopping block
but they have to captured first.

Anyone who's worked for CSX will tell you they hate the former Conrail locomotives.

The railroad doesn't base their decisions on what railfans want.

They are pre-production so by definition the bugs are built right in. I don’t think they are really worth making run truly correctly at this point. They are old.

CSX Locomotive Roster Update As of 01 Feb 2018

Welcome to this month’s CSX Locomotive Roster Update! We’ve got another raft of retirements, centered around the Gensets and Dash8 fleets. Read on and enjoy this comprehensive update!

A factoid to note: this month we dropped below 50% YN3 on the roster, with enough YN3 retirements to reduce it from the majority to just a plurality.

We are still tracking the SD60 retirements we "announced" last month. We are probably going to be rolling back those that haven't left the roster at the end of March. We're pretty confident that only about two dozen will be meeting their retirement in the short term here. We apologize for announcing them too soon, but with how things are working inside CSX these days, it is quite likely that they were in fact all due to go but then they decided not to mid-stroke. We'll keep updating this issue to its resolution, as you'd expect from this page!
