CSX Railroad Honoring 1st Responders Locomotive Spotted in NJ

This article is a direct street report from our correspondent and has not been edited by the 1st Responder newsroom.

On November 24th, the CSX Honoring First Responders locomotive passed through New Jersey, photographed here in Teaneck on the River Sub Division of CSX. It was headed north to Selkirk, NY and points west after traveling up from Philadelphia, Pa. As you can see, it is painted much like a fire apparatus with white cab, bright red car body, and gold stripes and logos that reflect Fire, EMS and Police. Of course, the number used is the nationwide emergency response 911 that everyone is familiar with, and the cab is lettered with "Spirit of our First Responders". It rolled out of the Huntington, WV paint shop back in 2019, and has traveled all over the CSX system and the nation on run through trains at times on different railroads. Keep an eye out for this unique and sharp looking locomotive dedicated to all those who serve.
