Wrong on the paint job. This switcher was donated to the Fla Gulf Coast RR Museum by CSX or Seaboard System and was repainted by museum volunteers into the ACL colors. It was SCL 130 before the museum restored it's original ACL number. The museum had to sell it to the sand company to raise the funds for their move to Parrish, FL and start up operations which initially were with two Alco RS-3's.

What is with the RED BAR on the pilot?
Does it flip up with the rope?
