Remarks & Notes 
It's a hazy SW VA day as an unusual trio of engines serve as a pusher on a CSX coal drag utilizing NS trackage rights at Speers Ferry. The trio consists of GE BQ23-7 No. 3008, patched Family Lines U23B No. 3241 and GP38 No. 2172 still in L&N livery. The BQ23-7 was mechanically identical to GE's B23-7 but built with an enlarged cab as the crew "quarters", hence the "Q" in the designation.
