Yes, I agree. Especially with those unique red and blue ditchlights...

I found the link to the Trains article. Could be helpful for some to actualy see a photo.

I believe the locomotive will honor the women in blue, also.

— says Ed Harris, CSX executive vice president of operations. “This is a moving tribute to the men and women who serve us every day" {snip}

Cheers, Ed

Yes I would have posted a picture but MR makes it so difficult to do it that I just give up. But thanks Ed for posting a link.

Put her and the first responders unit together, and just have them tour the CSX trackage system with a Operation Lifesaver educational train, making stops in each town along the way...

And I want to see those ditch lights operating so bad!
