CSX is really going at it in Benning Yard with line relocation and construction. I even saw track machinery on the old Pennsy overpass from Benning Yard into the former PEPCO now Mirant Benning Power Plant. I couldn't tell if they were tearing up the old spur or actually doing maintenance. I have not seen any railroad equipment on that bridge since I saw a Pennsy Switcher on it while I was going home from a Senators game in the mid 1960's. Unless the work is in advance of rail movement of some heavy electric generating equipment I can' t imagine coal or oil ever moving back into that plant by rail. The old East Washington RY street level trackage is long gone. Anyone know what's up with the spur?
The only thing cooler than seeing an ABBA set of EMD F-7's is hearing and ABBA set of EMD F-7's.
