The ChP survives at Empalme

While visiting Ferromex's Emplame Yard and invited into the engine servicing tracks, I stumbled upon this surprising locomotive. Ferromex 3024 is a GP38-2, still wearing the FNM two-tone blue paint scheme. It was immediately obvious that the peeling FNM paint revealed the venerable green and red of the NdeM paint scheme. However, the real surprise came when the foreman showed me the other side of the locomotive. The FC Chihuahua al Pacifico lettering was almost completely uncovered, as well as the Chepe logo. And, it was all in perfect condition - as if untouched since the ChP became part of NdeM.
