In the early 1990’s, CSX acquired ex-Reading GP39-2’s for system-wide service. These locomotives were perfect for local and switching duties. A few of them were merely patched with CSX lettering and renumbered before eventually being repainted into CSX’s “YN2” scheme. They are still being used today with most being repainted into CSX’s latest scheme.
