After arriving 4th out on NS 788, the crew of P66 was nice enough to bring back the best unit of the 4; the Southern painted SD40 #3170.

Desolate, dusty Vaughn, New Mexico, population about 500, is one of those places only a railfan could love, a cluster of vacant buildings, gas stations and a motel or two at the intersection of U.... (more)
P90 negotiates the sweeping curve on the north side of Westminster, SC with a classic paint scheme for these parts, #3170 on home rails again.
Still partially wearing its C&O paint CSX 4617 leads its southbound train to Louisville's Osborn Yard.
An SD40 leads 3 SD45's up the hill and around the curve. I'm only guessing that the lead 2 units are the helpers that will come off at the top of the hill.
POED with a new Pan Am 3400 series locomotive in the lead takes the curve in North Berwick, Maine passing MP234.2.
A string of power sits at the depot in Gainesville including Sou 3170, Ex CR 8303, and elder SD40-2 3428. The fresh Southern tuxedo paint looks very classy on 3170.
Southern vs Conrail Southern 3170 sits coupled to former Conrail D8-40C, NS 8303, at the Gainesville Depot awaiting future assignment.
My personal favorite unit on the NS roster, 3170, sits at Gainesville, GA on a restful night in early March.
A detailed view of the cab of NS/SOU 3170 reveals the features of the cab and an up-close look at the tuxedo colors.
On a mildly cool night in Gainesville, GA, NS/SOU 3170 rests at the depot awaiting future assignment to local service. There's nothing quite like seeing tuxedo highhoods out on the main in 2016!
