I believe this was the Metropolitan Sub.

Today at 11am, #5296/5407 were on a NB single stack train, crossing over Paint Branch Ave near Univ. of Maryland

Today at 2pm, #8507/8590 were on a SB trash train, very short of only 10 cars or so at Point of Rocks station.

Also saw the Tropicana train at Hyattsville, MD around 9 or 930 am, but didn't catch the engines.

Im an employee of CSX in Selkirk yard and railfan and I see many, many locomotives and work on them as well as move them. I'll do what I can to help locate or photograph prototype pictures for the modeler and railfan alike. I've started taking photos of shop activity as well, for the modeler who must know exact specifications.

Sightings in Hagerstown 4/17/2008

6461/2233/8515 tied down in front of offices

6084/6391 drilling the gondolas and AGP tankers that run parallel to Rt. 11

6354/2677 idle

Also spotted 5544 latched onto a Jordan spreader. I have seen in recent weeks track gangs north of the yard and all along the Hanover Sub through Gettysburg to Hanover.

EDIT: 4/24/08 5544 B30-7 with the Jordan spreader, working along the Lurgan Branch. Had back itself into the siding at Paramount Feed along Longmeadow Ave, I assume to allow the daily local or stack train go thru.

is there a locomotive shortage, (GP40-2's) in the Cranberry Division? I caught B735 last week with one engine and I went past the Readville yard and only saw one engine working

I believe there is. I know the 6235 is still out of service until investigations and court hearings etc. are over regarding the Stoughton incident. Remember at Readville there are two day jobs and 2 night jobs. B710 swaps power with B733 and is usually only one loco. If there are 3 locos in the terminal B732 & 731 use the pair.
