I don't get it either, sure I wasn't a railfan back in '05, but I do not think that it is that big of a deal to rebuild a unit involved in an fatal accident. However, I would agree that NS should maybe keep it off the R-Line (I know it'll mostly be in coal service, but just don't send it there).

Why? It was crew error that led to the accident. The engine just happened to be leading, I dont see why the engine itself matters.

It's fine for them to do so, I welcome it in fact, but what I do have a problem with is that the practitioners of the more "arty" shots, I have found, tend to look down their nose's at others who are shooting more "mundane" shots.
Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

Yea, I think you are getting a little overly emotional on the subject. This isnt the first time a RR has re-used an engine someone died in. 99% of the crews wouldnt know this unit from the next, they arent railfans. As long as it's running, it's fine.

the NTSB issued a report officially blaming the accident on the P22 train crew's failure to reline the switch for mainline operations.
In the following quote is what happened.

Backwards SD60's warrant a thread bump
