Chance Mance Meeting
1. CSX Q135 climbs west up the east slope of Sand Patch grade while passing the historic Mance Post Office at 3:15 pm on January 9.
2. Eastbound CSX Q136 meets its westbound twin just uphill from the post office.
3. Mid-train dpu's help the 11,000-foot Q135 towards the summit.
Earlier that afternoon, a 230-car empty coal drag came west led by four units. Fewer but longer and dpu-assisted trains are now the rule over Sand Patch.

I especially like your first photo, with the former Mance Post Office in the background.
