First of 12 former NS SD40-2's to be patched and prepared for service on CSX. And yes, the number boards will be changed.

The newest retirement, 8976 joins other interesting power in the HLS deadline. Ex-CR 6665.
Not much left of 8972. Scrappers have been carefully removing parts that can be reused, the rest will be hauled off by truck. Sad.
Scrappers have torn into 4615. Doesn't take long to cut a locomotive down to fit into a scrap trailer.
What's left of 8417 is hauled off by Mansbach Metals for scrap. Locomotive was scrapped on site in about 8 hours.

2280 is half blasted in preparation for new YN3 paint.
Fresh new paint!
The newest CSX retirement :-(
