9969 shows as a GP40-2 and "OOS Past Due Service" since September of 2013. For something that is supposedly getting added to the Geo train, there doesn't seem to be much push to get it returned to service and put with the train. 6025 has been the dedicated Geo Train engine for at least as long as I've been with CSX. Only getting 'subbed' out when due a Q inspection or some other work.MSchwiebert wrote:Does anyone have any photos of the ex MARC unit on CSX property? Sure, it would free up a 4 motor unit for yard/local service, but other than that I don't see many advantages to using the unit in place of the existing GP40-2.
