Those yellow nose CSX patch jobs were very common in the early 90's after CSX went to the YN1 paint scheme, supposedly they did it for safety. Most every single CSX painted ghost got a (properly painted and lettered) Yellow nose on the short hood end, some (4 axle units mainly) got it on both ends, and they also applied it to lots of the gray SBD and Family Lines painted units as well, even an L&N unit or 2 got it, maybe even a Clinchfield or SCL unit got it. About the only thing that escaped was that SBD painted GP38-2 which was only recently painted in YN3.
