Consecutively numbered SD50s 6821-6822 take 102 northbound empty hoppers UFY-??? passing the Fair siding just south of Watsontown, PA on 5/15/92. Units after the split became the property of Norfolk Southern and were renumbered 5469-5470. Both were retired upon termination of their leases and after a lengthy storage at RMDI in Pittston, PA, 5469 joined the NREX lease fleet and was last seen reposing in the deadline at Silvis, Illinois. The 5470 was sold to Progress Rail and sent to Patterson, GA where at last report still sits..
