Title:  WE 6354 (8)
Description:  An SD40-2 stopped at the west end of the Connellsville CSX Yard with 16 tank cars plus buffer cars.

WE 6354 was one of two locomotives to play AWVR 1206 in the "Unstoppable" movie. Note that the Youghiogheny River is so muddy it almost looks like chocolate from all the recent heavy storms.

CSX 9969
Title:  CSX 9969
Description:  Track inspection/geometry train going west out of Connellsville. The GP40WH-2 is the only locomotive of this type that CSX owns. It is generally only used for this train. The heritage of it is former MARC 69, MARC 32, CR 3051, NYC 3051, and PC 3051 built in July 1967 as a GP40. The door being partly open on this was a slight annoyance for the photo, but I can live with it.

WE 303 and 300
Title:  WE 303 and 300
Description:  A pair of GP40-3 engines are leaving Connellsville with just two buffer cars on the train after dropping off some loaded tanker cars for CSX. The crew was almost out of time and stopped at a road crossing a few miles west of here to get picked up. These trains now seem to be running in daylight hours again.

CSX 8027 and 3393
Title:  CSX 8027 and 3393
Description:  Q317-10 going west after getting a train put together in the Connellsville Yard. It is now a rare event when a CSX SD40-2 is leading on a train instead of a GE engine. Under the reign of new CEO E Hunter Harrison, there have been many earth-shaking changes at CSX. This train is one of them. For decades the Q317 and Q316 trains used the Mountain Subdivision from Cumberland to Grafton. Now they get their start and end in Connellsvillle. Other new trains now go through Connellsville as well. Some railroad towns on CSX have not been so fortunate and have seen a decrease in traffic or activity.

CSX 8335 and 3408
Title:  CSX 8335 and 3408
Description:  A bit of railroad history here, as the ever changing CSX has now decided to completely reroute the Q317 trains and make them a Connellsville to Newell to Grafton run. They used to run from Cumberland to Grafton on the Mountain Subdivision for many years. If they keep using standard cabs like 8335 I could really get used to this new train.
