One of the things i really like about CSX is their willingness to let old standard cab EMDs lead a train. In this case, an SD40-2 leads a westbound auto rack train across Attridge Road:

My first visit of this month was last weekend. A westbound CSX intermodal kicked off the afternoon/evening.  
 

 
 
 

 
Both photos in this post were taken by me Friday 7/11/2014 in Riga. NY. My camera locked up for some unknown reason, so there were no further shots of this train.

For reasons unknown to me, all of the eastbound CSX trains went down the West Shore Bypass on this visit... including this mixed freight.  
 

 
The power included a UP EMD:
 

 
The 3rd unit was an SD40-2:
 

 
Also, a new signal had been erected at CP 382 since my previous visit. I have a feeling the signal bridge won't be there next summer.
 

 
And down the Shore it goes...

This eastbound CSX mixed freight also had an SD40-2 for the trailing unit... as well as a leased engine sandwiched in the middle.
