Leased GEs on LS&I

Reports on YooperRails indicate that the first two leased CEFX AC44CWs are now working on the LS&I and that 3 more are en route. The blue paint on these units will be interesting pulling ore loads in the UP. In a way I'm happy they aren't SD40-2s given we have a nice sampling of those on NSM. Come to think of it, if you like the SD40-2 model northeastern Minnesota is a good place to be. Counting NSM SD40s, the 16 ex-IC/BN units on CN's ore lines plus CN 6020 and various BNSF units floating around help make our area a bastion for this classic EMD model.
