GP49 Number 2807
Having traded in the scenic vistas of Alaska for the foothills
of southern Ohio, former Alaska Railroad GP49 2807 is one of three ARR GP49's
now working on the Jackson Division of US Rail. Working as train Z701 on CSX,
the crew is waiting for the HD Dispatcher in Huntington, WV to talk them by
the signal at the East End of Vauces Center siding to couple up to their train.

From the Last Frontier to the Buckeye State...the three former USRP/ARR GP49's for the new Cincinnati East Terminal Railway (CCET) are now finally all on the property, and are awaiting some work and inspections before entering service. In the meantime, the leased RJ Corman GP38 will continue to serve the CCET's motive power needs until at least one of the GP49's are up and running. In this view are all three GP49's: 2807, 2806, and 2803, with the RJCC 3863 visible at the end of the row, resting in Ancor Siding on a warm Ohio Valley spring day, something these Alaska units probably aren't used to!
