PC: Re: Re:Conrail Renumbering

I think I saw one today, a C40 with low number boards and high headlight
and a 7300-series CSX number, in full fresh-looking G/B/Y dress -

lot of leasers floating around on CSX too -

most unusual loco consist I saw recently was a ML train with CSX C40-8W/CR
SW1500(ex PC most likely)/CSX C40-8W/WC SD45 - how often is the SW1500
under power in the middle of the consist? usually they trail and are just
along for the ride -
