C.S. Jackson General Great coincidences here in this picture: Both SD40-3's, Both are numbered in the 6000 series but one slight difference: One is GEC Alstom Canada (GFCX) and the other Illinois Central (IC). That is a slick photo here. That would be nice to hang on the bedroom wall in or on a computer desktop. 11/11/2006 10:11:58 PM
william davis General Thanks C.S. Jackson. 11/14/2006 7:38:05 PM
C.S. Jackson General I thin I know what's going on with GCFX 6061. It was renumbered CN 6931 and it's back at CN. And You know what'll happen to the IC SD40-2R's. They're getting the paint job. They already did SD70 1039 december of last year. 1/16/2007 7:35:04 PM
william davis General I'll be sad to see the IC paint go, but it will not hurt me that bad being I have hundreds if not thousands of shots of IC over the years, but for the beginning photographer get as many photos as you can, because IC will be a memory one day in the not too distant future. I think the IC SD70'S look sharp in CN paint, but I wish that CN still used the CN North America Scheme. Oh well, we just have to work with what we've got, either like it or lump it 1/16/2007 7:47:14 PM
C.S. Jackson General I got some more Bad news for You. CN is planning to order more locomotives. It looks like the IC SD40-2R days are going to be numbered. 6/25/2007 11:12:43 AM
william davis General I don't mind CN ordering the SD70M-2 model, but as for the C44-9W I'm not as fond of those, but I will film those if that's all I can get. 6/25/2007 1:21:09 PM
