No word yet on the release of this locomotive. Thought I would start the thread in preparation and to keep it consistent with the others.

Is it me or does #184 not have as much meaning as does the Phase I, II, or III engines? It seems as though the phase IV paint scheme was so short, we went from Phase III to Phase V so quickly. Did all the P42's get painted in Phase IV? What was the timeline for phase IV?

Somewhere between here and there

Phase IV was quick. Not all units were painted in it.. I believe the time line was somewhere between 96 to 2002 or so.

#184 was the lead engine on #58 today in Hammond, LA. As the train is currently turning at Memphis due to the flooding in Kentucky, it will return to New Orleans tomorrow.

It looked quite impressive coming into Hammond in the lead; there was a second unit backwards apparently so no wye would be needed in Memphis.Quite a change from the single unit Hiawatha look alike...
