More Conrail in Alliance Action

November 17, 2021

Conrail B36-7 No. 5019 is rolling a westbound intermodal train through Alliance in June 1986. The unit was built for Conrail in November 1983 and would for a time join the Norfolk Southern motive power roster before finding duties working for two foreign railroads.

2 Things No Longer Used by CSX

June 30, 2020

There are two things in this image that are no longer in use by CSX but let’s not get ahead of the story just yet.

This image of a container train eastbound in Warwick was made on Oct. 13, 1996.

Lead unit CSXT No. 5891 is a GE B36-7 that was built in July 1985 for Seaboard System.

It has since been retired from the CSX roster although locomotive leasing firm NRE has it available. Just check out their website.

As for the other item no longer used by CSX, that would be the color position light signal.
