GE tags them as ET44AC's.... CSX calls them ET44H's....

Camera panning and slow shutter speed gives the appearance that U777-22 is running much faster than 25 mph.... But they are holding a steady 25 mph to allow the Signal Department to test the timing of new grade crossing equipment at Piedmont, WV - 22 October 2015

It's 7:00 pm. and the Signal Department folks are still working out the bugs on the new grade crossing equipment at Piedmont, WV. The 1/4 second exposure allows for a strangely transparent Center Beam Car at the end of Q317-22 - 22 October 2015

Nice shots! Now it's my turn to share some mountain railroading! my cousin and I visited Sand Patch for the first time earlier this month.  
 
My first sighting was this eastbound CSX mixed freight crawling upgrade at Scratch Hill Road:
 

 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 

 
Note the split paint job- this coil car might be ex-Conrail:
 

 
Pushers on the rear of the train:
