Remarks & Notes 
Built in May 1978 for Conrail, this 43-year-old EMD GP40-2 continues to wear CSX's ever increasingly rare "Bright Future" YN2 paint scheme as it lays over in the railroad's former C&O yard at South Charleston, W.Va., on a warm spring night. CSXT No. 4419 is one of only 12 standard cabs on CSX's roster still wearing this scheme and one of only four four-axle locomotives in YN2. While YN1, Conrail, and YN2 schemes were abundant when I started photographing this rail yard 12 years ago, it goes to show that in railroading, the only constant really is change - and this once popular paint scheme now stands out among the more common gold-and-navy YN3 and YN3b schemes.

A continuously growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom seen beauty of railroads from the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, trains roll on! (I'm still finding sunset to sunrise surprises!)
