Good deal. Thank you for your efforts! I see much the same going on in Santa Cruz, CA where trail advocates are doing their absolute best to get an active rail line removed. They aren't even happy...

From the sound of things at the first link, it doesn't seem like preserving rail service of any sort is on the table. Did I miss something in there?

It's out-- LC 8784 in dress black. But it does have the L&C logo on the cab side, at least. Doesn't look bad, IMO. Granted, the L&C blue would have been quite nice looking, as well.

Thanks for the info, Joe. I can't really say I'm at all surprised at the paint choice. It'll be neat to see, regardless of the scheme.

Gonna be cool when those things get paint, whatever scheme it may be (probably G&O black). Thanks for continuing to document the changes on the L&C, Joe.

Wow, how unfortunate. Thank you for letting us know, RW. I was really encouraged to hear from him after a lengthy absence.

I hope all is well with you and your family.
