Default Columbus & Greenville Railway 3/26-27 observations

Swinging through the shops at Columbus, MS CAGY GP38 2011 (GWI orange, high nose), CAGY SD40-2 3310 (EMD leasing blue, with CAGY sublettering), and CAGY GP9 1002 were sitting there, along with 1003 by itself further down toward the sand tower. CAGY GP38 2777 (still C&G green and high nose) was under the "carport" covering by the shop.

I arrived at Bent Oak to find Job 46 switching Severstal, with CAGY SD40-2 3312 (in marked out UP paint with CAGY sublettering) and CAGY GP11 8718. They conveniently swung a cut out of the yard and onto the main, allowing for some photos.

I shot a KCS yard job in Artesia, MS. Would anyone happen to know if
they use any sort of symbol for the yard jobs? This would have been at about
4pm on a Saturday. KCS 1909 was the lead unit.

In Greenwood, MS the standard dead CAGY GP9 1001 and CFY 807 were in their usual spots at the Hwy 82 crossing. In the yard were CAGY GP11s 8720 and 1806. 8720 is very dirty now. 1806 still wears her IC black dress.

In Greenville, MS this morning (Sunday), CAGY GP11 8715 was tied down at Main St.
