Thanks Brian. In other news what the hell did they do to 2009?! Is that it's original P&W colors showing through on the blower housing?
if you can't conduct yourself, conduct freight

Looks like fire/heat damage to me.  And where are the exhaust stacks?!  Tier II emission standards be damned.  :D

I read online they had some type of fire. And I do believe you are right about the original colors -- the big stripe scheme...

No camera so no pictures, but was by Enola yard today and the Wabash and New Jersey Central units were there today (1/25).  They really stick out amongst all the black and white.  Also a few ex-BN lease units.
