Re: Lapeer yesterday/GT 4919
Still nice to see the occasional GTW units out and about. Handful of "Burdakin" blue units remain, but a large number have been repainted into CN colors. The plan from the outset was to repaint them as they went in for major shopping, and that is precisely what has happened. With 4 axle power for lighter switching at a premium these days on CN, most if not all, that are not retired due to catastrophic failure will end up in CN colors. Also, I would not be surprised to eventually see some sort of rebuilding program for 4 axle power one day, akin to the GTW GP9 program a few decades back. That was the beginning of the end of GT blue.
