I heard HESR 2668 Was getting canned. gonna need a lot of maintenance and it's not a good/decent puller. HESR 3323, The SD40-2 painted in G&W Orange and yellow is out on the B&P. Will become HESR's once the B&P gets their new engines.

Oh and Jon, none of the RA GP38-2s on HESR have been renumbered. Likely won't, I heard that they'll either get it after the repaint. Get your pics of em, they're gonna be gone sooner than ya think.

Don't forget to remove the KRR 3801 from your list as well, after it moved.

I think that was a typo on Glenn's part.

Dunno if it's been mentioned or not, but the I&O has two Ohio Central SD40-2's on property now. I'm too lazy to look back to see if anyone else posted about that.

It's been mentioned a few times, I caught the 4030 making a run from Leipsic to Delta a few weeks ago. Geddy D caught it leading the run back to Lima LHF.

Also, I&O 5013 has been working in Lima recently. Don't know if it is still there, but it was on the Lima switcher on Thursday and Friday. JFDX 8045 and HLCX 8161 have arrived on IORY property as well, working south of Springfield.

I don't think the 8045 has made it out of Cincy yet. The 8161 has been sticking around Wash CH.

So far G&W has wiped out Cascade Green (on the I&O) and brought in orange, blue and maroon. I like this trend! :D

You like that trend, but think about in a year or two when it is nothing BUT orange. You're going to wish just once could get cascade green or maroon leading a train. :!: :wink:

PatC created a monster, 'cause nobody wants to see Don Simon no more they want AARR I'm chopped liver, well if you want AARR this is what I'll give ya, bad humor mixed with irrelevant info that'll make you roll your eyes quicker than a ~Z~ banhammer...
