    I'm pretty sure there are only two unpatched CNWs. I have no idea how many patched.

    Within the last three...four months I have seen a CNW Dash9 unit running through Northern Ohio. It was on an NS unit headed towards the "Chicago" area. Also back in the summer there was a CNW, SP, DRGW, BN Exec, UP, and CSX lash up in Cleveland near 200th street refueling terminal. God, if i had had my camera that day! It was a beautiful sight! They were hauling Intermodal cars, probably to the yard near E.55th(?) I dunno, you can see it from the highway tho. Just amazing sight to see. Those units were patched tho with UP colors, except the was cool with that green, cream and red coloring.

    Maby soon we will be back up there and I was wondering just where this museum is?

    There are enough directions on the site that I can find this.

    Yes, for a little while the unpatched CNWs were MUed with the heritage unit. Then, for a while, the heritage unit ran with an Olympic SD70M and the United Way SD40-2:

    I have been to the IRM, but it has been many years. I know Deano makes a trip there every year. He lives not too far from me up in WI
