FEC's new ES44C4 #802 on the GE Erie test track
Author: FEC2000

Last Friday I got a heads up that a FEC GE was on the test track at GE in Erie, PA. I found the 802 out with three CN units and one GE demo. The 802-803 should depart Erie late this week or early next. A handful of the new FEC units will be headed to Kansas City for final painting as the GE paint shop at Erie is backed up. I also saw the 800 on the test track in primer, but was unable to snag a photo of it. The FEC officials are at Erie this week to do final inspections on the units that are completed. Look for up to 4 deliveries this month, more like 2, 12 in November and the final 10 in December.

Enjoy the photos! FEC is about to change forever!

A few slow pulls and a few high speed runs!

I would imagine that CSX will take those away or is NS going to take them instead?

It is said to be NS that will deliver.

Design wise, I wish they would have just left that circular logo off the side of the nose. It looks out of place on a very good paint scheme.

Very snazzy!

In photo #8, where the train is passing over the road, is that the Erie Canal to the right behind the concrete wall? Probably not, but I'm wondering...

They announced this about two weeks ago! Its funny how close they were with the painting on it. Can't wait to see how they turn out, I might just have to get one as my father loved the FEC.
