    Here's a link to the MP15AC I photographed in Richmond, Va. this past weekend. The oddest part was the consist it was in: it was teamed up with a GP38-2 and a CW44AC!
    (The tracks were literally too close for me to get a pic of all 3 units together).

    A few weeks ago, I was waiting for the guys at NTB to plug a hole in my tire, so I walked over behind the new Potomac Yard shopping center here in Arlington, VA (site of RF&P's original Potomac Yard). The CSX mainline runs behind the shopping center, and there was a northbound freight waiting at the signal bridge headed by CSX (ex-Con) SD60I 8737, CSX CW60AC 614, CSX MP15AC 1172, and CSX C40-8 7594. Definitely a strange combination to see on a long freight. I guess CSX throws switchers into the consist if they need to move one to another yard, or maybe they just needed a little extra horsepower? If it wasn't in the middle of the consist, I would have thought it was deadheading.
