I wouldn't worry too much! Did you happen to notice how long it took them to make the SD50-2s!? Imagine how long it'll take for them to do a rehaul! Nonetheless, being a 13 year old railfan that sits at the tracks with a bike every weekend, I'll miss them too. Recently read they'll be doing the same with SD40-2s too. They were the only company of GEVOS on priority assignments and hopefully with CSX investing so much into them they'll continue to do just that for many years.

Man! I feel like I just gave one of those speeches where I just want to break down and cry!
