Below is a Dean Heacock pic of the
real #3022. This unit was delivered in C&O blue and painted into
this scheme sometime between 1972 and 1986. I don't have any better
information than that. It was later renumbered #4099. Notice
in the pic below that the "CSXT" initals have been placed where the "C&O"
initials originally were. This was common in the early days of CSX.
The pic on the right is not considered a Chessie picture since it is in
the CSX era and a CSX number. This unit was retired, but then CSX
brought it out of retirement and converted it into a road slug in 1990
and wears the number 2309 today.
Below is a starting pic of #3022. This is how it
looks in the box from the C&O Historical Society.
Below is the finished locomotive, ready to run.
