OK guys, CSX is also "Restoring" the old C&O painted SD40 #4617!!!! :mrgreen: This is great!!!! I have seen this loco (with CSX ends) switching "Queensgate Yard," Cincinnati, OH, December 2002!!!! Man, they shouldn't have painted it in YN3 colors (that sure didn't last long)!!!! Soon we can see a "Fresh" C&O engine pulling trains!!!!!!!!!!

It's close. Font of the numbers on the cab side is wrong, but still nice to see.

It also now has Conrail® style "Red Marker Lights!" This will be alright by me!!!! It's better than another standard "Widecab!!!!" This locomotive is great!!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
