  1. LTEX 1001 was sitting in Port Rob this afternoon tacked on behind 2421. I thought it would be today’s 531 but I don’t think that’s the case. Good chance it’s tonight’s 539 instead.

  2. This style of LTEX paint is based on the school colours for Ohio State University, where one of the owner’s graduated from. True it does resemble CORP paint scheme, somewhat.
    I’ve been watching for the 1001 to leave and so far, unless my trace results are cuckoo, it hasn’t left the country….

  3. Saw this on my way to shoot that C40-8 the other weekend, very nice looking. I don’t live too far from here at all so I should check it out soon.

  4. This looks much better. Also reminds me of Railtex a bit.

  5. Wow, gotta go out and see this one!! 1001 wasn’t the prettiest of units at the time of leaving but I loved shooting it

  6. Thanks Arnold. Was the old switcher and two trackmobiles that I observed when I was there back in February, so yeah that should be plenty I’d guess! Neat unit they’ve got now.

  7. I think the other one is gone. A lot of rolling stock around there. Hard to tell if there is the older one hidden on the premises, but I rather doubt it. The trackmobile is adequate.

    Oh, and Larry……….you’re welcome.

  8. 1014, my fav unit number. Thanks for posting this.

  9. Well well. The other one gone, Arnold? Or they have two now?
