Various CSX road freights with older GE power including a surprise visit from Southern Pacific in September, 1995.

Greg, in 1995 the 5800's weren't but 10 years old and were standard on almost all thru freights and pigs. That sd-40 and u30c are a little older. Check out the red flag on the rear of the 454, back when you could run line speed with a marker. You usually had a red flag in daytime or an fra light at night.

Red-over-yellow-over-flashing-green is certainly an interesting signal aspect.

GE's were also prevalent in Georgia and Florida on CSX because Waycross was a heavy repair facility for GE's.  Older units were commonly downgraded to local and yard service.
