C&O Locomotive Leaves CSX Shop

A newly repainted former Chesapeake & Ohio SD40 is en route to the C&O Heritage Center in Clifton Forge, Virginia.

The locomotive was reported to have left this week the CSX locomotive shop in Huntington, West Virginia, where it was painted in C&O markings with a blue and gold livery.

Trains magazine reported that a local that handled outbound shop moves was taking No. 7534 to Russell Yard at which it will depart on train Q302.

The route to Clifton Forge is all former C&O trackage.  No. 7534 was formerly CSX No. 4617 and was the last locomotive in revenue service on CSX to be painted in C&O colors.
