Some days, the most interesting person you meet is a river with a train running beside it.

Nice catch Charlie_O! I need to find where all you go in Philly. I never find a good spot and a train at the same time when I'm around there.

Caught the Track Geometry Train out on the Amoco Branch off the Peninsula Subdivision. CSX train ID W001-08 is at the end of the Amoco Branch with CSX #6025, a GP40-2, CSX #994364 Power Car Columbus, and CSX #994302 TGC2. CSX #2573, a GP38-2 on the local, H773-08, was working out that way and you can see him in the background.

Am I confused? I thought someone (YeOldeEnjine?) posted shots of the Geometry Train after mine and now they are gone!

So, I still say the CW60ACs looked sharp when they were new. They look good as CW46ACs too!

Is it any wonder we have disagreements over historical information? When was this locomotive (CSX #655) built? GE can't decide if it was August or October 1999.

Probably around the same time YeOldeEnjine was catching the widecabs (nice job!),  I was sitting at MP 361 on CSX'sROchester Sub.  
 
The first train was a westbound intermodal on Track 1:

For reasons unknown, the intermodal stopped there... so the crossing was blocked for about 40 minutes. This did allow for a few meets, including Amtrak's eastbound Lake Shore Limited:
