Remarks & Notes 
GR GP38-2 #2104 makes its debut run on the Grand Rapids Eastern in new corporate colors. The engine is the former Chicago, Fort Wayne & Eastern #3885 and has been the engine assigned to GRE since 2013. Earlier this year it was swapped for Marquette Rail #2042 on sister road MQT, so it could be painted. The painters finally arrived last week and worked their magic on the old 3885, transforming it into 2104. G&W wasted no time getting 2104 back to home rails, as the locomotive hasn't even been out of the paint shop a week at this point! While some may gripe about how common G&W orange is becoming, I much prefer it to the Railtex era red and gray this engine wore before! Seen here shoving towards King Milling in Lowell.

After years of service, even the most reliable of locomotives get worn out.
