A weekend 515 Local out of Pontiac went SB by MP 22.5 around 12 noon today with 6200 as power. Isn't this the original DT&I GP38 from 1966? A very early GP38?

Train 371 NB passing MP 22.5 at 2 pm with BNSF 8400 and 6295.

GTW GP38 #6200 has been gone for years! A "Quick" search yielded what it became! Look here, it is now RTEX: http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/LocoPicture.aspx?id=13665

I didn't think DTI 200 was still on CN's roster. But I am pretty sure it was 6200 that went by and it looked like a GP38. In black and orange modern CN paint scheme. Larger numbers on the side of the cab. It just went by NB on the way back but it is dark out but I saw 6200 on the number board as it went by.

398 by 295 about 1450 with 2 cn. I didn't catch the number but the leader had a circular emblem under the engineers window that was white with a couple symbols on it one of which looked like a gingerbread man.

Have they stopped running 451? I dont remember hearing it mentioned lately. I know 371 predated 451 and they would sometimes switch the number during the trip. Or am I confusing the numbers?

Sounds like 383 is about to head down the shared at Vinewood and down through Delray. He's following 116 I believe.
