Default I'm thinking of an Engine..

CSX has (had) a GE B unit that was all black. Its been a couple years but this thing was ugly as sin. We dubbed it the "black sheep". It was working a work train. Anyhoo, can't remember the engine number. Hopefully someone know which engine I'm talking about. Need to know if it was a B40 or B38. Hope you can help!

CSX got those ex-Conrails B40-8s from NS in a trade, but I can't remember what CSX gave up off the top of my mind. Some of them were still in Conrail blue

ex-NS 4810

I believe as of now all locomotives on the active roster are either YN2, YN3, or YN3.5, the last YN1's have all been repainted I believe.
