OCS: Office Car Special.

The rust spot on the front of the engines is where the striker plates of the OCS cars hit the engines' striker plates. As the metal wears through the white paint, the bare steel rusts. It will be fixed the next time it lays over at the Juniata Back Shop in Altoona.

I didnt know anyone still used FL9's anymore, Metro North retired em in 2009-10 and they had them for a very long time

I hadn't noticed before that the B units only have the railroad's initials whilst the A units have the whole name spelled out.

In this shot of 4270 it has the same rust spot in the same place as mine of 4271.

In my first shot of 4270 and your first shot of 4270 it didn't have that. Now 4271 has one to.

I wonder if that is a place there they get impact.

I've been trying to work out what OCS stood for, I keep hearing American railfans talking about it, now I know :) Nice shot of a classic old loco. We've got a similar train in the UK (well I think its still running) owned by EWS, who were of course American-owned, so bought the concept of an 'executive' train over here.

What a treat just to see working B units! It's interesting how the Norfolk & Western corporate mentality lives on.
