CSX Trenton Line CP Berry

Philadelphia PA

July 6 2017

 

Like many Class I railroads, CSX is disposing of some of its older equipment. Like many Class II railroads and shortlines, Pan Am Railways is an eager buyer of cast offs from the big boys. Already an owner of ex-PRR, NYC, PC, CR, NS, N&W, SCL, SBD, CSX, CN, KCS, TFM, SP ATSF, CRR, MILW and QNSL equipment, they have acquired a number of retired ex-CSX B40-8's, most derated to B20-8.

Up front on CSX Q388 are four working engines: CW40-8 7920 (former LMS 702), AC44CW 160, and SD40-3 4025 and 4040.

Trailing are former CSX B20-8 5943, 5953, 5974, and B40-8 5967, all in YN3 or Dark Future paint ...
and former CSX B20-8 5936 and 5946 in YN2 or Bright Future paint.
A rather short Q388 that was rather long on power.
