The "newer" GE's at IRM
Author: EL833

It was mentioned in a below comment that it was good to see some GEs being preserved. I'll concure, and to that end here is one of the morning lineups at the IRM Diesel Days event. All 3 would eventually pull trains for the crowds. The TTI U28B is there due to it's CB&Q heritage. It would make what I think was it's "maiden run" on a caboose hop this past Sunday morning.

Is the UP #1848 going to get re-painted back into SP / SSW paint?

I can't recall a time ever being around any GE older than a Dash 8. I've always loved their body style and sound.

Any chance the U28B will get repainted into Chicago, Burlington & Quincy "Chinese Red"?

Glad to see they snagged that ex-Q U28B. I used to try and keep tabs on her, not many left and I doubt many people knew about her. Kudos to IRM for not letting one slip through the cracks, this made my day👍🏻

Special thanks to CSX for having the foresight to see it preserved and help extensively to that end.

During my time in Alliance, NE 1977-1984 I would say there is a high probability I ran the 5383 or had it in a consist. I remember when it was new and looked as fresh as it does now at the museum. We got to see some of the B boats on freights west out of Lincoln. Maybe I had my hands on this unit as well.
