Freshly repainted EJ&E 666
Author: dt8089

Took a quick run out to Griffith IN and shot this unit tonight.
They look nice in fresh paint. Dan

Great shot! Another #666 unit, too... Hopefully she won't be hexed by the number of the beast... IIRC, BNSF had one on their roster that we would meet from time to time.

Nice picture, but I disagree. CN red & black will never look as good as EJ&E DayGlow Orange, especially on the legendary "devil" engine, 666.

Still a nice night shot, no matter what your color preference.
Fresh black helps for night shots...very easy for worn black to blend in with the dark sky. Thanks for posting Dan.

Looks good, thanks for posting.

But like others, I will miss the J as well (and their orange paint).

I'd rather it were orange, but I'd certainly like to get a shot of it in its new clothes, too.

The ATSF 666 was later renumbered 599 because of the superstition.

I would wager the B&LE will be spun off someday before a Bessemer unit get painted CN. CN had to take the B&LE, PCD and Great Lakes Fleet in order to get the the Missabe so they could have the mainline from the MN Iron Range to the Twin Ports and connect the former DWP and WC properties.

Don't like seeing small railroads and their schemes go away, but IMO the CN scheme, when clean, is one of, if not the best of the Class I everyday (i.e. non-heritage) schemes.

Very nice night shot. And you caught a unit in the CN scheme at the only time it will ever be clean: immediately after a repaint.

More likely to get G&W orange/black than CN red/black.

With the EJ&E being merged into WC (as was the DM&IR and DW&P) I wonder if this will be the last unit to carry EJE sub-lettering?

Nice catch, Dan.
