In a sea of action red & multimarks, one of my favourite liveries, officially 'lived' 14  years.


 Chessie System, C & O  #4826, one of ten GP38, EMD 1970, under the 'gaze' of that 'script' water tower.


 At CP Rail Agincourt, May 6, 1984 Kodachrome by S.Danko


 noteworthy


 CP and C&O had a long standing motive power arrangement. My first visit to CP Leaside, on a sunny Sunday morning spring 1968, the first two trains, one east one west were powered by C&O / B&O  F  units. (That westbound had an A-B-A lashup). 


 Four years later ( 1972 )  the Chessie System livery was unveiled 


   Chessie System era officially ended July 1, 1986  when  the   C  &  O  merged into CSX Transportation


   CSX Corporation, dates from November 1, 1980,  when Chessie  &  Family Lines  agreed to  form that holding company 


   ( only months before the Chessie era ended, April 1986,  the  B  &  O officially merged into C & O; nothwithstanding the latter's original purchase of the B&O was 1963 )
