When the old paint scheme (McGuiness, MCG) came out it was reviled (disliked), just like the new paint scheme (xbox) is today.

MTU has a decent reputation so this is something of a surprise. Does anyone know what Cummins plant is going into the rebuilds?

Thank you for that. Interesting plant. The MPI MP54AC uses two QSK60s. The soon-to-be-released testbed fashoned from an ex-L&N GP35 is using a QSK50. And of course the Charger was built around the QSK95. Even so the QSK60 has a good railroad track record so it should be a good performer.

MNRR engine 112 was spotted on the Virtual Railfan railcam in Laramie, WY on July 31 at 6:50 MDT.
I believe it was one of the Brookville BL20GH engines. Any idea why it was way out there?
