Remarks & Notes 
Wabash E8A #1009 was the 10,000th diesel locomotive built by Electro-Motive Division, commemorated on June 14, 1951, at its LaGrange, Illinois, facility. After retirement, it went to the Virginia Museum of Transportation in Roanoke, Virginia. After falling victim to a flood in 1985, the unit fell into a state of disrepair for many years. During 2012, it went to Norfolk Southern's East End Shop in Roanoke for a cosmetic rebuild, and again moved to the NS paint shop in Chattanooga, TN, at the end of 2013 where it was painted into its as-delivered scheme. The final touches were applied on March 3, 2014, and 1009 looks as good as new again. It will return to display at VMT, and is planned to celebrate its 63rd birthday during the "Streamliners" event at the North Carolina Transportation Museum in Spencer, North Carolina, from May 29 through June 1, 2014.
