Railfan Pictures of the Week - 11/18/2018
CSX Trenton Line CP Berry Philadelphia PA November 5, 6 and 9 2018
CSX has been experimenting with its operating plan for the past couple years, and intermodal has not escaped tinkering. 2017 saw the combining of Q032 and Q034 into one train operating on Q032's schedule and the inclusion of Q740's Tropicana cars on Q140. This year Q140 was abolished and the Tropicana cars were added to Q032 but that caused delays, so now they are on Q410. The latest is the introduction of distributed power units (DPU), but on an inconsistent basis. Three runs runs in the beginning of November clearly illustrate this, starting with the run on November 5 which featured the usual format: two engines up front.
The next day DPU was on display with one up front and one in the middle.
To finish out the work week, on November 9 Q032 ran DPU but this time with one engine on each end.
