The Look of the Seaboard

The early CSX era like the early Conrail era was notable for sightings of predecessor railroad motive power that had served another region of the country.

On the former Baltimore & Ohio line though Akron that mean seeing locomotives from various southern railroads, including Seaboard System

When this image was made in September 1988 CSX U36B No. 5742 still wore its Seaboard livery.

The unit was built for Seaboard in April 1971 and is shown leading a westbound train in Clinton (Warwick).
