Today's NS 203 w/ NS #1800 (SD70ACc)
Author: NSTopHat

Got a heads up this morning that NS #203 (Rutherford, NJ to Atlanta, GA) was going to be coming past the hose with NS #1800 in the consist, along with a AC44C6M still in primer, so trackside I went. Got out there about 0930 and waited. 203 showed just shy of noon in Gainesville, GA. It has been a blah overcast day, but with the forecast for the next three days of being 60% or better chance of rain, I figured I would atleast make the most of the day.

Image #1 - NS #203 with NS #4118 AC44C6M (ex NS C40-9 #8843) leading. Apparently this is one of two AC44C6M's to be running around in primer. The other being 4123, both of which are Roanoke rebuilds.

Image #2 - NS #1800 trailing and facing north rolls past NS (ex N&W ) #6167

Image #3 - I found INTX #7615, a PS 4750 originally painted for Farmland Coop Elevator in Roland & Nevada, Iowa on the Gainesville Midland, now CSX, loaded and waiting to be moved to Ampro Products (American Protiens, Inc.)

Didn’t NS get in trouble with the feds one time for running primer painted units? Seems like I remember something about visibility’s

The issue was that the primered units did not have the required safety stickers on the carbodies.

Thanks Chris

Does this unit meet the requirements?

Given the political climate in VA the NS is temporarily suspending the application of black paint to unit faces...
