    Paint on that old striped unit is looking as though they got much more than their money's worth of of it.

    May 1978 at Knoxville, TN. Coal was moving in unprecedented volume on the L&N and locomotives were in short supply. Sure wish trailing C-628 1408 would have been in the lead!

    Hardcoaler,
    I understand what you're saying, but I wonder if the crew was more thankful to have a fresher, more reliable SD40 leader? :D

    I have seen a few CN units, but they're rare in these parts. I see more CSX, NS and UP units running through...

    I bagged a few from Cheyenne 2003-2006. Here's a few.

    From about 1975, CN 539717 has been unloaded at Barrington, IL. Stenciling reads "BLT 2-56". I wonder if traditional journal boxes were still permitted in the mid-70s or if those journal lids hide roller bearings?

    Didn't they usually remove the covers, so that the roller bearings could be seen?

    IIRC regarding journal bearings, they were banned from interchange in 1991 for hazmat and in 1994 they were banned from interchange for all ladings.
