The Clinchfield's first diesel locomotive, F3A number 800, has been restored to its original paint scheme by CSX's Huntington Locomotive Shop in West Virginia. Built in December of 1948, and often... (more)
HLS's newest rebuilds, GP40-3 #6500 and GP38-3 #2000 are seen here coupled to freshly painted GP38-2 #2507 at Huntington.
Except for a few streaks of rust, #4140 appears to be in pretty good shape, despite being a quarter century old.
Fresh from the paint shop, Huntington Locomotive Shops load test unit shows off her new YN3 paint. I feel pretty safe saying this will be the only SD45-2 ever painted YN3!
About eight years earlier, Kevin Piper photographed this engine at Barr Yard in Illinois. It looked a lot better then, Huntington appears to be the end of the line for this old Geep.
A real rarity on CSX, I believe there were only two NW2s on the roster at this time.
SD45s didn't last very long on CSX, the most recent photo on this site of one in service was taken in 1989. This one is stored at Huntington, along with two GP16s.
CSX's "stealth" paint scheme was one of the ugliest ever, and at first I thought that's what was being worn by the 8960. Photo comments indicate that it's actually wearing a coat of primer.
A contingent of older EMDs rust away in Huntington.
When this engine left Huntington it was probably wearing the new silver MARC paint scheme.
4553 is looking a little rough around the edges after more than two decades of tough service.
This little critter was probably the most unusual unit on CSX's roster.
Scrappers have torn into 4615. Doesn't take long to cut a locomotive down to fit into a scrap trailer.
Not much left of 8972. Scrappers have been carefully removing parts that can be reused, the rest will be hauled off by truck. Sad.
One of two SD60I's left in CR paint goes in for standard repair. She will be wearing new YN3 when she leaves.
