Unread post by Saturnalia »

***1-12-13 Edit: Thread is now for all CSX Roster News & Information, including YN2 stuff***


Gonna separate these from the YN2 thread. Here you will find info on all repaints into YN3B

I have received word on 4 new repaints:

- SD40-2 8000
- SD50-2 8503***
- GP40-2 Road Slug set, 6404+2309.

***8503 was the first loco to be painted in YN3 eleven years ago

There are now 63 units in YN3B, Of them, 33 of them are from pre YN3 schemes, while 30 are YN3 repaints to YN3B

Small tidbit for the books: CSX 2720 was the LAST unit painted in YN3, 8503 being the first.

Just saw it in Tontogany on Q209, looks good. Wasn't it delivered in YN3B though?

My bad, I thought they started with the new logo with the 3000 series only. Have to pay better attention I guess :D

Sharp photo of 8369. This unit was at Huntington shop on April 13 for work and paint so it has not been out on the road long. Another new repaint reported out of Huntington in YN3b paint, (but no photo of yet) is CSX 138. This one was former YN2.

Also, it has come to my attention, that when yard slug 1052 came to Huntington for work and YN3b paint earlier this year, its mate SD40-2 2412 DID NOT COME WITH IT, and remains in just YN3 paint which makes it a mis match mother slug set, paint wise. Another set, Nashville assigned 2425/1063 has now been confirmed as both painted YN3b.
