I'd love to see an SD50S in real life, they are probably my most favorite unit that NS has. How many are left on the roster, 3, maybe only 2?

NS has only two of them left now.. the 6502 and 6504. The 6502 has been in storage for over a month now, and the 6504 has been in coal service around VA for most of the year..

here are a couple of pics of them in service..
