CSX hauls the President's tanks south
Author: Lackawanna484

CSX operated a special move South on Friday afternoon.

Two locomotives and two DOD flats with two tanks. Power was 911 and 1776.

Passed the Ashland camera at 4.30pm. No caboose or rider coach. Quite a few people watching

No caboose or rider coach when they came north, so not expecting that on the southbound move either.

w89905 "evaporated" upon reaching acca yard.  the cars were cut off and the 911&1776 went to the bryan park engine shop and were locked away inside for the night.

The northbound move last Saturday from Ft Stewart GA (Savannah) to DC had three flats with two more pieces of military equipment.  Same locos.

Is the armor still in Acca yard?  One report said it would move south on Saturday with different power.

One of the northbound flats had 2 Abrams tanks and another flat had 2 Bradley units all in olive drab colors as I recall.  The third flat (in the middle of the consist) had another tracked vehicle and a Humvee style both in desert sand.

Unfortunatley wouldn't be the first vehicles to disappear in DC...
