Chiggiddy check this out. I saw the Holy Grail a few times in the summer of 2008, and here's a shot which includes that rare beast and a bunch of other neat stuff that is long gone.

Since everyone cant stop talking about SD60's, I figure this thread needs a good bump back to front page.

Thanks, Joe. Honestly, the feedback I was expecting was along the lines of, "why did you bother to post that to this gallery, you can barely see the engine!"

That locomotive is a disgrace....in all honesty...

Should've been scrapped...

That's all I'm going to say before I start going off the handle on behalf of my fellow NS Piedmont Division friends....

I just threw up in my mouth. This thread is now tainted and this should be locked now.

It's hard for me to look at, truth be told. Nothing to do was asthetics. Just remember how strongly one of the egineers we both know feels against it. If NS sends that thing down the R Line, that would be the ultimate disgrace.

Looks great to me. That overhang will help a TON with the sun. Its not fun when you have to spend a whole day using crappy sun shade to block out the sun which is right in your eyes. Hopefully the overhang will help alleviate that problem.

Trust me, I'm not trying to sound like a smart/jack-ass, but do some research on this unit and you might figure out why a lot of us in 'our' area have a stink about this unit...all I'm going to say is that one of our fellow friend/railroad brothers died inside the cab of the unit in which this was rebuilt from. I just hate constantly having to go into detail over and over again about the specifics of what happened...

Ahh Graniteville. I dont see what your qualms with this is? Plenty of units in wrecks get rebuilt. As sad and tragic as the disaster was, I'm not sure why people would get up in arms about this.

Then don't post at all? You make it sound as if people on here forced you to talk about it, but really no one forced you to comment on the situation.

This is not the first time that a locomotive involved in an accident where there was a fatality has been rebuilt and placed back into service. In the case of this unit, few if any crew members who will operate it will know its history and it will just be another locomotive. Its a simple fact. Its also a fact that a railroad is not going to just dispose of a locomotive just because it was in an accident where there were fatalities. Yes its a sad story that someone died but life goes on.
Nobody piped up asking you to give everyone the details about this locomotive and the accident so don't try and be a drama queen when someone mentions it.
