B&O GM50 was repainted into standard Chessie colors in August 1984, and given the number 4164. Under the CSX renumbering, I belive this unit would have recieved the number 6063. I do not know if it is still operating for CSX. Here is a link to a great site for information on Chessie locomotives. http://www.trainweb.org/chessiephotos/

I'm pretty sure the 6063 is still on the roster. Saw it go by work a few weeks ago. Though alot of the old 4100 series GP40-2s are showing their age.

6063 is alive and well.
