Author: DTWilson

CSX GP40-2 #4419 still earning her keep 42 years later after being built in May 1978 as Conrail #3322..

Working as part of the power for D725 at Cumberland, MD as they pull the last section of Q416 into the yard at Mexico Farms Rd.

Back in the Conrail days those 40's were premier TV train power, until the SD40's took over.

Impossible since this CSX paint scheme was not introduced until 3/26/1990, which is 30 years old.
