Went to the NS employee luncheon today to check things out and found that CP Rail has a yard office by the hump in Robert R. Young yard, didn't know that. Also a red and silver engine 8101 with yellow tape all around it as it had colliided with something. Kind of in the weeds behind the NS yard office.

It was reported 2 years ago on TO that 8101 was in Altoona being repaired from a side-swipe in Elkhart. Well it either never left or got side-swiped again? It definitely is in the jungle behind the yard office.

Heritage Units shows it was active 2 weeks ago. Hasn't been caught leading in about 6 weeks.
If it was damaged and needed to get home again, it wouldn't be leading. But it has been on the road since the previous oopsie.

Could it have a twin? Interesting as it is I wonder if they cloned it? No pictures of this unit have been posted since it was in Sacramento in July on stack train.

Case solved, was there for company picnic. Yellow tape was to keep the little ones in check. Must have come over from Bellevue during the night to Elkhart.
