Generational Lineup

The railroad probably didn’t intend it this way, but the motive power consist of this CSX train is in perfect order.

On the lead is a CSX GP15-1 No. 1523 followed by units in the liveries of Chessie System and Baltimore & Ohio.

What’s perfect here is that the ordering of the locomotives mirrors their historic evolution from B&O to Chessie to CSX.

The train is  west of Ravenna in June 1988.
