Remarks & Notes 
CSXT 9994. At least that's what it COULD have been. Former CRR 800 spent years being repainted and renumbered to become the first CSXT 116 and with another cab unit & a B-unit, were the original business car train power (along with assorted side projects, like the RoadRailer). In the early 90's, the set was sent off to work MARC commuter (the B-unit went to the museum in Baltimore)...and then-116 went to Potomac Eagle's ops on the South Branch Valley RR. It wore CSX paint for a long time. Long enough that when CSX began renumbering their fleet, a spot on the roster was allocated for all three. 9994-9996 to be exact, much like 9990-9991 would have been the ex-CR E-units. (Hence the gap in the F40 numbers) In the end, in 2014, #8016 would visit the "Streamliners" event in Spencer, NC only to never return, as it was restored to CRR 800. For a long time, tho, it still carried the VLIX 8016 reporting mark....a real story of what could have been and what actually happened.
