Remarks & Notes 
CSX O701 about to leave St. Petersburg Yard with 2 motors and 15 cars, mostly loaded aggregate hoppers. The crew reported that the 4310 would not load in reverse, so the ex-Conrail GP38-2 2704 was doing all the work on reverse moves. St Petersburg Yard now consists of 2 yard tracks, of which only 1 is used except in rare occasions. Mostly used as a run-around track actually. This was once a good sized coach yard and shops where all St. Petersburg bound passenger trains terminated and were serviced. The entire yard and shops complex was abandoned in 1984 when Amtrak discontinued service to St. Petersburg. A Home Depot now sits on the site of the former yard.
