CSX "Spirit of Cincinnati" 5500

In April, 2007 CSX took delivery from General Electric ES44DC class locomotive 5500.  Several months later, the railroad applied the lettering "Spirit of Cincinnati" honoring it's long history in the Queen City and the cities continued importance as a major CSX terminal.  Below is an ever growing gallery of photos of the "Spirit of Cincinnati" during its visits to its namesake city.
