OK, yesterday's (7-31) train A483 had "Blue" IC C40-8W #2462!!!! Well, this will probably come north today on A482, right? It was reported on Facebook® that this is the last working IC "Blue Devil!!!!" Can this be verified? :?: "Heritage Units" IC 2462: https://heritageunits.com/locomotive/detail/IC2462
