Christmas Eve 2014.... Rain, Gloom, Cold.......... but CSX threw out a couple of events that made a man venture forthwith.
 
Q315 had a Dash 8 on the lead. They arrived in West Keyser before daybreak, but had to pick up a 'Shuttle Engine" and drop off some inbound cars for the paper mill. By the time they completed their work,  there was enough light to catch them westbound at Bloomington, MD - 24 December 2014

Q317 was overheard talking to the dispatcher about dropping cars he had for the paper mill in West Keyser. Since I was home, I caught the man at 21st. Bridge westbound under the former WM trestle - 24 December 2014

Now the problem was a extremely large amount of inbound cars for the paper mill that had to go to the WVC Junction yard in Beryl, WV. Due to the large amount of cars, the crew from Switcher Job B770 required the use of both locomotives from Beryl.... That left the B771 crew without power to switch "The Park" Here the B770 waits for the Q317 to drop the inbound cars in West Keyser - 24 December 2014

With no other power available, the crew from B771 makes use of one of the Heavy AC 6-axle units assigned to the Mt. Storm trains. #749 pulls 4 loaded covered hoppers out of the west yard and will soon be shoving them east towards the Industrial Park - 24 December 2014
