Congrats on getting the units! Although we wish you'd keep them in NH livery!
A pair of former Connecticut Department of Transportation FL9's still wearing their New Haven “McGinnis” paint scheme applied by CDOT move west on BNSF Train H GALKCK1 02A crossing the KCT Argentine Connection Flyover where it will drop down into BNSF Argentine Yard.
The State of Connecticut was once owner of 10 FL9's, and 6 of them sat in storage since 2009 before being auctioned off in 2018. This pair was sold to the Grapevine Vintage Railroad based in Grapevine, TX. GVRX 2014 and 2016 are 1960 EMD products and were originally NH 2041 and 2044, respectively. Once in Texas the pair will be repainted into the GVRR “cabernet and champagne” scheme that their passenger cars are dressed in, and will run in pull-pull formation on their excursion train.
