Heritage of unit #550?

Post by train2 » Sun Mar 22, 2009 2:53 pm

I have seen reference to loco #550, a C425, being in the shop for work.

What is its heritage and more importantly what paint is it in?

Has the unit hit the road yet?

Found these images of 550 on the kids camera.
They were taken 1 year ago, on 11/6/2008.
