Some days, the most interesting person you meet is a river with a train running beside it.

What better way to end the year with a “Big Mac” SD80MAC. I was lucky to get one of these rare birds yesterday leading a westbound. The old Mac’s will always be Conrail to me, but in the Dark Future paint, and CSX leaving the class lights on them they don’t look too bad in the second to last day of 2012

Speaking of the SD80MAC's, did CSX ever repaint what was the original #801 as it was in "Bright Future" paint and I know it got re-numbered, but did it get repainted in the "Dark Future" paint?
 
Interesting question.....

Ex #801 now the #4591 now wears Dark Future. She was repainted in the YN3 scheme in 2011.

It is interesting that CSX elected to leave the markers intact whereas NS made an effort to remove them from the Conrail acquired power. There are certainly exceptions, of course, but this appears to have been the general policy.
 
Always a treat catch one of these units with the markers lit. If you are fortunate, a crew might light them for you.
 
Here is an SD80MAC at Pinoca Yard in Charlotte with lit markers.

Danny,
Thanks for bringing that to my attention!   I'm still going to model my Railpower Products SD80MAC to be CSX #801 even so.....
 
I would imagine that #4600 is the original #800?

You're welcome, John.
 
The original #800 was renumbered #4590
 
#810 became the #4600

Danny,
Thanks for the clarification of 800 and the 4600.....Interestingwhat they numbered them (or I should say renumbered them!)
 
Anyway, why did they put them into the 800 series only to renumber them into the 45XX to 4600XX series? Any Idea?
 
I understand alot of what goes on, but this one has me scratching my head as to why.....

The decision was made to renumber the SD70MACs and SD80MACs that were in the #700-800 number series to make these slots available for the ES44AH GEVOs. This unified the numbers of the GE AC units beginning with #1 thru #999 which includes the AC44CWs, AC60CWs, and the ES44AHs.
 
There are two exceptions...a group of AC60CW/CH units that are numbered 5000-5016. In addition, the new batch of ES44AHs begin with #3000 and currently run through #3024.
 
The SD70 MAC/SD80MAC units having been moved into the 4500/4600 number series at least aligned them with other EMD units. There are some quirks in this numbering sequence, though.
