i know that i certainly wouldn't have known off hand...i guessed..then looked up the answer.. and was correct! I believe the answer you are looking for: It was the first unit painted into YN-3 :)

This is kind of a fun category, trivia. I used to be online, and would just randomly throw csx #'s at patrick...almost always knowing the exact engine type.
