CEFX 9486
Title:  CEFX 9486
Description:  I decided to take a tour of the short lines today and my first stop netted a gem! A former SP SD45 is parked at the DGNO/TNER shop in downtown Sherman still wearing full SP paint. How much longer will this big motor wear this scheme?

CEFX 9486
Title:  CEFX 9486
Description:  If DGNO paid retail for diesel, which is $3.69/gal near my house in north Dallas, and this SD45 currently has 3,150 gallons, there is $11,623.50 riding below the frame of this unit. I really hope DGNO gets a huge discount.
