Remarks & Notes 
Photographed at Riverside on June 29, 1986, the newly repainted CSX/B&O 6344 is the former Chessie System/B&O GP40-2 4446. Outshopped from Huntington in early May 1986, this was the first locomotive painted at a Chessie shop in the new CSX scheme. Note that it initially retained the B&O reporting mark.

This was actually a welcome sight to most, as at least the locals were not exactly big fans of the Chessie livery back then. I have to admit, I liked it--well, maybe without the unnecessary "TRANSPORATION" on the long hood. Unfortunately, the various iterations of the CSX scheme would get worse before they got better.

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
