Chessie Locomotive Headed for Museum?

The CSX shop in Huntington, West Virginia, has repainted  a GE B30-7 locomotive into Chessie System colors and livery and a Facebook posting said the locomotive is headed for the Lake Shore Railway Museum in North East, Pennsylvania.

Trains magazine reported on Friday that the museum has declined to comment on the report and that CSX has not yet responded to a request for comment.

The engine in question is No. 8272 and a photo of it briefly appeared on a page for workers and former workers at the Huntington shops.

The museum specializes in preserving locomotives assembled at the nearly GE locomotive plant.
