CSX YN2 Livery Gets Fresh Outlook on Life



CSX No. 156 a GE C40-9W led train Q015 through Akron on Sunday and I caught it passing the old Schwebel’s bakery at Cuyahoga Falls.

What makes this 20-something –year-old engine interesting is its paint. It wears what CSX calls the YN2, scheme which was the standard paint during the 1990s.

This engine is freshly painted in 2016, however. Why is that?

Well, apparently, it was involved in a wreck while offline in Mexico. It was rebuilt and received its new paint while there.

Ferromex used another CSX locomotive also painted in YN2 as the basis for this repaint.

And so the YN2 scheme has been resurrected at least for this one engine.
