Did anybody else see the two solar-powered CSX ballast trains running on the Willard and Garrett subdivisions yesterday (April 25)? The first was W072 was led by an SD60I and the second, symbol unknown, was led by an SD40-2. They went west in the mid- and late-afternoon respectively.

They are orange and solar panels on each end except for one car - as of last year. I saw the consist at least half a dozen times last year and got pics too.... pretty neat.
