Took a look at the photos of 6046 being restored. Looks like an extremely thorough job, considering they don't exactly have a huge, fully equipped shop. Nice to see these engines getting the attention. That 8F the CVR has is very nice, too. Eight-coupled engines seem to have a versatility lacking in other classes, i.e., they could be used in just about any kind of service. I suspect that grey paint on the tender is just a primer coat. Makes me want to don the fatigues and come over and run her for you. I spent 18 years in the US Army, albeit mostly working in intelligence rather than transportation, but am now a qualified locomotive engineer for Union Pacific. I have a great appreciation for both railroads and the military. Whatever, nice job, lads!
