Why do they remove the horns?

Funny how other railways are scrambling for power at the moment, but CSX is cutting their power back in large numbers. Different visions and different traffic I suppose

Probably so they won't get stolen. Have you looked at what a 5 chime Leslie is going on eBay for these days ? I just read in the latest Trains magazine that CSX was hauling the same tonnage as a year ago with 1000 less locomotives. That's a lot of idle engines. It may have been a misprint and they may have meant to say 100.

Brett, it wouldn't be surprising if removing the horns, among other probable reasons for removing horns such as theft and why buy new horns when you have these from the unused locomotives, marks the locomotives as unusable and not in service and thereby changes their taxable status.

It won't be long now until even more modern power will be retired. CSX won't last selling off engines like this.

could make for a difficult puzzle.

Steve, great idea! My parents love puzzles, will send this page to them and ask about that.
