window caboose is painted CSX blue and gray with aluminum roof,
yellow ends and black band along the bottom on the sides. The
herald and lettering are blue. The cabooses rebuild date
is 1986 and runs on Swing-Motion trucks. CSX transportation was
formed on July 1, 1986 on as a renaming of the Seaboard System
Railroad and Chessie System, Inc. into one entity. In the public
announcement, it was said that CSX is singularly appropriate.
C for Chessie, S for Seaboard, and X, the multiplication symbol,
means that together we are so much more. The T had to be
added to use CSXT as a reporting mark since company initials that
end in X typically are for rental railcars.
