The black things around the track and under the CR unit are mats that catch fuel spills and oil leaks so they don't soak into the ground. The 3 Yellow boxes are not boxes but stairs that go down the the inspection pit so crews can inspect under the loco.

Here's a view from the other direction, taken when riding PV Franklin Inn from Huntington, WV to Washington, DC on #50.

No superliners now, Dan. Today's Cardinal is Amfleet, Viewliner Sleeper, and Heritage Baggage car.
