Remarks & Notes 
With the derail down and the crossing gates doing their thing, W071 slowly backs the train of empty CSX ballast hoppers into the Vulcan Materials plant as the lone ex-Conrail SD50 is the only power needed for today’s job. Sadly in a just a few short years a scene like this would be no more, as the Conrail blues would be extinct from the CSX roster.
