CSX #8497 (no "real" prototype). This Former Iron Belt SD40-2, is still running in a patched scheme. Following in the history of Ken L's Iron Belt, in the mid-90's CSX was taking over, #327, was renumbered #8497. At one time due to be repainted, CSX soon opted to run it until retirement in the IB orange. This unit's age, and mechanical condition did not warrant repainting. Another 5 years, it may receive a Lease patch!
