CSX 2551, 2568, 1181
Title:  CSX 2551, 2568, 1181
Description:  Today CSX has brought out all three switchers together to work the yard job Y290-06. That does not happen very often. In this type of weather, I suppose it does offer more traction and power.

CSX 1181 and 2551
Title:  CSX 1181 and 2551
Description:  This remote-control operator is both the engineer and conductor on the front of this MP15AC bringing in some loaded autoracks onto Track 43 in the Connellsville CSX Yard. The autoracks were one half of the Q216-13 autorack train, which lately is so long that is has to be split apart when it gets to Connellsville.
