GLLX SW9 #4
#4 has arrived at the West Michigan RR, seen here on the CSX interchange in Hartford. It might look tired, but it runs like a top! During the last 7 years it has received a newly rebuilt 12-567C engine, new traction motors and a new set of roller bearing AAR type A trucks. The #4 will eventually be used to supplement SW1200 #1512, and it will be pretty damn cool to have a genuine C&O SW9 working an ex C&O branch line! As one can see, it still wears it's Pere Marquette-inspired paint job from its days on the tourist hauling Leelanau Scenic RR.
