Hey, it's me; that crazy number dude again...

Whenever I see a lead unit whose road number ends in "00" I consider it to be good luck for some strange reason. If I can catch one in a photo, even better...and if it gets posted here, well, let me tell 'ya; my whole year has been made!!

Just wondering if anyone has got a shot of a locomotive at RP.net that ends in those lucky double-barrel digits. If it ends in "000", well then you should be off to Vegas!!

Here's my shameless plug for some views:

Chuck,

This is from Sunday, BNSF 3000:

I thought it was weird to see an RC unit leading a manifest on a mainline. Plus it's a GP40M to boot. See, you never know what you'll see!

BTW, I'm not going to Vegas...

Today I caught (although backlit) BNSF 7700 on the Z-LPCSSE.

Looks like I'm off to Vegas. Oh yeah, I'm too young. I guess video games will have to do.

I used to work for a railroad that had a GP9 #777. If that isnt luck, then I dont know what is. Only deezul I have ever ridden in. 777 was the most reliable locomotive on the railroad.

Well, that "00" represents the first unit in a class. i.e. BNSF 5600 is the first AC4400CW.

Default Not always!

NS 9100, 9200, 9300, 9400 are just a few for example that are not the first units in the c40-9w class, & many of their "class" units don't end in double zero.

Willie's right! The first NS dash-9 "catfish" is actually #8889, and the last (hopefully ) is #9978!

BTW, if you currently don't have your own shot of a "00", "000", or locomotive with the same digits in it, then post your favorite from the database!

Here one of my favorites:

I've seen CP 9000 (an SD40-2F 'red barn') and 8600, an AC4400. ex-SOO Line 4444 does switching moves here on a regular basis, too.

On Friday, I saw but did not shoot an empty NS coal train through Rock Hill with two BNSF wide nose GEs as power -- 4603 and 4063. Which I thought was neat.

I always like catching this unit on the Aberdeen, Carolina & Western.

Although since it hasn't left ACWR rils in five years, "catching it" seems not the best term here.
