RF&P 143
Title:  RF&P 143
Description:  In the 1980s CSX's former B&O Capitol Sub between Baltimore & Washington DC started to become much more colorful as foreign power made regular appearances. Some of my favorite foreign power engines were those of the RF&P, which often showed up on piggyback trains. Here RF&P 143 leads CSX 2596 (in Family Lines gray), and RF&P 126 south (railroad west) through Riverdale, MD (now called Riverdale Park) on an overcast winter day. Date is approximate.

Description:  I believe this was train 100, rolling north into Potomac Yard with 28 trailer flats. RF&P was peculiar in that even units faced north, odd units faced south, as seen here.
