Back on line after computer failure 2 weeks ago. Third new monitor in six
months, and then had to read and delete 143 PC and eBay related e-mails.
Anyhow, on the way back from a funeral in Ohio a week ago Saturday I was
bombing down I-75 though Cincinnati due to the closure of 71. My wife
mentioned "oh look, a train" so I look up to see a single SD with a string
of cars. The SD (too busy driving and shocked by the paint job to notice
what type it was) had a yellow nose with CSX in blue lettering on it.
However, the side was dark blue with a gold/yellow C&O on it!! Did this
loco luck out on not getting Chessie and CSX paint somehow? It looked nice
as I whipped by, so I think it is a recent paint job. Is it a one off or is
this a hint of things to come, just think of how some modern diesels would
look with cigar bands....
