Again, it was only a short interval before the next CSX freight train passed through Chili Junction.

As with the previous CSX freight train, this one had UP power.

It's just speculation (with no basis in fact), but I'm guessing CSX wanted to get as much foreign power west of the hurricane's projected track as possible.

In what seems to be a common CSX practice, an SD40-2 was the trailing power unit.

The approaching storm made a spectacular sunset as the westbound manifest freight passed the signals at MP 382.

This would be the final train I would see for about 4 days, as Hurricane Irene hit eastern NY the following day.

Excellent shots, Matt!
 
That unit tank train with UP #8117 leading, was that a SD90MAC?
 
Thanks,
Charlie

While the Northeast got its first snow of the season, it was a rainy, overcast day at Lee Hall, VA. Early out of Newport News yard we find CSX #429 leading #782 westbound on track #2 with some of the newest hoppers CSX has. It is mighty dark for being almost 0900Hrs, but it sure helps the signal stand out. Note: I took the liberty of removing one of CSX's repeater antennas from the photo.

In warmer weather, an eastbound unit tank train with BNSF power rumbles into Buffalo Creek Junction on CSX's Chicago Line.

While the tank train idled, it was passed by a westbound manifest freight.

Vintage power on CSX? You bet! An IC&E SD40-2 leads a westbound unit tank train across Lake Avenue.
