Description: Paolo says this was the last time he shot active, unpatched Conrail units. Shortly after this, he went on vacation. When he got back, the B23-7s had been replaced with CSX 6200-series EMDs and the 80MACs were either patched or gone. This pair was waiting for their CSX numbers; 4100 became CSX 800, and 4122 became CSX 809.

Description: Since the CSX SD80MACs are going to NS at the end of the year, the chances of seeing one lead a train are getting slimmer and slimmer. Even though the clouds rolled in, Al couldn't pass it up. Q249-19 west at Muirkirk, Md.
