CSX #8052 (ex-SCL, same number) leads train H773-07 on to the Amoco Branch to drop some cars. Judging from the light engine move I saw later the same day, they had no cars to pick up. 0951 Hrs on 7/7/15.

Looks like FEC is getting some of those Ex-UP units painted. FEC #716 was leading CSX train K960-26 on 7/26/15. Why did these units get such a long nose?

I was always under the belief that the long nose housed Radio Control Equipment / Loco-trol for units used as mid train helpers....
